Anyone know what is going on with UA1646 (YVR-IAH): 2 Nov. 2018 ?

My wife and 2 small children are supposed to be on this flight today. Currently showing a 5 hour delay. Expert Flyer says the delay is due to environmental damage, anyone know what this could mean? The A/C has been sitting at YVR since last night.1646/02NOV

I can see that from expertflyer but I can't see the very first part (I see L04.41 and second part, which now says cancelled).

Expert Flyer. I no longer see the comment about environmental damage, not sure why that would get removed.

Wow, the flight was 7-8 hours late because the boarding process was delayed

Meanwhile over at the 863 gate to SYD on Saturday Night Nov 03
United Flight 863

Status: Your flight was delayed because of an issue affecting our computer systems. Again, we're sorry for the inconvenience. (Arrived Gate 1 Hour 13 Minutes Late)

Impressively, the late aeroplane operating 863 to SYD was turned in 1 hour 25 minutes to fly UA100 to IAH - kudos to the UAL operation in SYD.

DEPARTS
City: San Francisco, CA, US (SFO)

Check-in Terminal: International Terminal, Concourse G
Scheduled Time: 11:55 p.m.

i see “boarding process was delayed” if boarding takes longer than usual on an already long-delayed flight. So, if a flight goes from being delayed 7.5 hrs, boards, and then departs 7.6 hours late, boarding delays get posted as the single reason for the delay. Currently UA is posting the last reason for a delay, not the primary/most important, best I can tell.

Was on UA78 4Nov and NRT-EWR was indeed cancelled. Started in BKK so a long trip �� via LAX thrown in as well. Arrived 5 hours late. Sure many had it worse.

Nov 04 LAX-SYD 839 departure delayed

United Flight 839

Status: We want you to know your flight is late because medical assistance was requested for a fellow passenger. We value your time and we're sorry for the inconvenience. (Estimated Departure 1 Hour 25 Minutes Late)

I often worry that I might be the one causing a delay - so in the scheme of things 90 minutes meh? - I hope the affected passenger is OK.

DEPARTS
City: Los Angeles, CA, US (LAX)
Gate: 72A
Check-in Terminal:
Scheduled Time: 10:45 p.m.
Scheduled Date: Sun., Nov. 4, 2018
Estimated Time: 12:10 a.m.
Estimated Date: Mon., Nov. 5, 2018


Co-incidentally pretty much all of the LAX-Australia flights departed ~ an hour late
