Yes, I can't tell what happen about DL has been delay from PHX-ATL for 30 mins due to the aircraft problems. It was this Sunday afternoon when I left from PHX. I have been missed the flight for FLL at 9:00pm and DL agent she gave me for next flight to FLL at 10:40pm. Can you have find out about what happen my flight to ATL then FLL. Can you have chance talk with DL employees about what happen this Sunday afternoon.

Then that's what happened. What you heard is what happened. Dispite common accusations, the gate agents don't just lie about delays for kicks. Your PHX-ATL aircraft probably had a maintainance issue or ATC/weather delay and that caused you to miss ATL-FLL. When people mis-connect (happens all the time), they are typically booked on the next available flight.

I think the OP is trying to ascertain the nature of the mechanical delay...usually the crew is good about giving details, however, he was either not provided with details or was not able to understand them.
