Forecast was right on the money. The worst of the trip was being stuck in the plane at the gate for almost 2 1/2 hours in PHL. There was a mechanical issue that was resolved in about 30 minutes. Because of a potential delayed arrival in Phoenix, they took 30 passengers off the flight so that they would not miss a connecting flight to Hawaii. The ground crew spent nearly two hours unloading the removed passengers luggage. How frustrating!!!
