    Smile The plane was slow to take off

    The plane was slow/late/postponed/put off to take off due to the bad weather.



    All of the bolded words fit equally well in the above and mean about the same to me, but what are your opinions? Thanks.

    How about: The flight was delayed due to bad weather conditions?
