    Miscellaneous Airline Delays/Cancellations

    The special repatriation flight from Uruguay's MVD on Saturday 11 April 2020 to MEL took off at 0137 hours. While not shown publicly as far as I can see, my guess for arrival at Tulla is around 0600 on Easter Sunday 12 April 2020. This flight is 5M751, operated by A343 9H-SUN. It has...

    Nauru Airlines delays

    Only small numbers of international flights are operating to and from Oz during coronavirus, and the way the Prime Minister, Premiers and health advisers are talking, this could be further minimised given the almost blanket prohibition on Australians departing our shores. On Friday 3 April...

    Townsville Security

    At Townsville airport it is necessary to remove an ipad or similar pad from one's carry on luggage and place it in a tray as one would do with a computer. I have never experienced such a requirement at any other airport in Australia nor indeed any where else in the world. Has anyone else ever...

    MasterCard Flight Delay Pass 2019

    First seen on OzB with a 28 degrees link, but now generic: https://flightdelaypass.mastercard.com/ Free lounge access if your flight is delayed. Have been unable to register my non-28 degrees cards though. Has anyone else had more luck?

    Hong Kong - likelihood of delays

    Posting on Sept 18 2019 - I am flying to the UK on October 10 and can take Air China via Peking or Cathay via Hong Kong. The latter is preferable IF there is no chance of delays or cancellations; I have a family event I have timed perfectly assuming no delays. SO, what is the current situation...

    Above and beyond solution to delayed flight

    Flt to SYD from OOL delayed, would miss ASP connection, and there’s only one flight per day. The flt to MEL would be too late to make that ASP flt, so Qantas have put me in a cab with a voucher to BNE to catch their flt to ASP. Gets in 90 mins late, but better than not at all! They opened the...

    QF7 huge delay

    QF7 from SYD- DFW is delayed by almost 10 hours. I’m in Dallas waiting to take QF8 to SYD and it’s delayed by at least 2 hours. This whole mess with flights cancelled out of LAX is having a wider impact. They have one A380 out of service for refurbishment and then some mechanical issues on...

    Whats your best experience on a delayed flight?

    We have all been held up on planes going nowhere and it can suck. After one late departure SYD-AKL we arrived very late and sat at the gate for 35 min because they could not get the air-bridge to connect. At 3am we were not amused. But what about the times where a delay is unexpectedly good...
