Is it a bad sign when AA delays your flight for "maintenance" but won't say what it is?

Normally it's something minor like an engine fire

That's their go to excuse for everything. I was delayed half an hour for "maintenance" and then the flight attendant told us later that a passenger on the previous flight had dropped their cell phone between seats and they had to find somebody with hands tiny enough to get it out.

Hope its not the bathroom on the plane. 4 hours to get a correct authorization in order to fix. #beaurocraticbullshit

Update: getting us a new plane so obviously something was horribly wrong on the original... We'll see how long this takes

60 minutes minimum. Probably closer to 90.

...and now the first officer timed out on us

Final update - sat on the runaway for a while due to weather in Dfw and then the captain ran out of time so I'm not leaving today...

Op. That's the worst. Sorry!

Hi all,
I’ve been in Human Resources for a few years now and have had wonderful opportunities and have been on initiatives that drove change for large organizations, but I’m running into an issue that I’m finding that I’m not getting out of my work what I’m putting in. I think I may be more ambitious and, despite running the risk of coming off as pompous, more talented than what the position provides as a ceiling. I’m reviewing options such as project management. Anyone have any thoughts?
