Dl 189 (dtw -> pek) - 2/16/13

Anyone know the cause of the 8 hour delay today for DL 189? I'll be flying it tomorrow and would love to not see the same thing.

On the UA site they usually advise why the delay.

Why would you think because it is late today it will be late tomorrow?

Terrible weather where? In Detroit? We've had scattered snow flurries but nothing that would delay a flight that long.
I wouldn't worry about it. Stuff happens sometimes. Law of averages says it won't be likely to happen again tomorrow

PEK flights seem to be frequently delayed due to air traffic control in China. When one is badly delayed, it tends also to affect later flights using the same aircraft.
