    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...

    Qantas major delays at LAX

    seems QF having major issues with A380s at present. https://www.msn.com/en-au/money/company-news/hundreds-of-young-travellers-stranded-halfway-around-the-world-when-qantas-cancelled-multiple-flights/ar-AAFp4NW?ocid=spartandhp Wonder if QF put any pax on FJ/NZ/AA/VA/DL/UA ? They probably...

    I'm flying DUB-LHR arriving 4 pm ahead of an LHR-SIN-SYD at 10 pm. Aer Lingus have advised me "we intend to fly" however expect likely delays and disruptions. They offer a flight change for free however a look online at the booking system is telling - no availability at all on EI for 5 or 6...

    Compensation for delayed flight

    I was stuck in the Heathrow debacle last Thursday and my flight BA31 to HKG was 5:02 hours late in departing, and arriving 4:27 late. I’ve been told my partner and I may be eligible for up to €600 compensation each. What is the best way to go about this? Is it worth the hassle of trying to...

    SQ 25 delayed on July 17/18

    We were booked on SQ FRA-SIN-MEL departing July 18 (SQ 25, which originates in JFK). Woke up at 6am as we had a 9am train from Stuttgart to FRA booked. Alert received (SMS and e-mail) that SQ25 delayed from 12:30pm to 14:30 (this later became 15:40) - panic - this meant we would miss our...

    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...

    VA347 delay Friday

    Anyone know what actually happened with the aircraft for VA347 from MEL to BNE on Friday evening 05/07/19, that caused them to close boarding, disembark existing passengers, delay, assess the aircraft, delay again then finally depart three hours later from a different gate with a different aircraft?

    European flight delay compensation

    Seeking clarification on the usage of this. I recently had a flight on Icelandair from IAD-KEF. We boarded, sat on the tarmac for 2 hours, then told of a mechanical issue which could not be resolved. We we're put up in an airport hotel overnight then boarding essentially the same flight...

    Pax kicked off Air NZ flight for ignoring safety briefing

    I haven't seen this discussed here elsewhere yet. A couple has apparently been kicked off an Air New Zealand flight from Wellington to Auckland after refusing to listen to the safety briefing. They were seated in the exit row. Good on the cabin crew, I say...

    Pursue CX for their delay to get me to AY flight from SIN on time? One PNR.

    So it doesn't matter if I was on an AY ticket and travelling a CX flight from HKG to SIN to transfer to AY flight I still pursue CX for their delay to get me to AY flight from SIN on time? One PNR.

    AVV Delays [In Processing - 2+ hours common]

    Recently some friends flew D7 218 KUL-AVV Now AVV is not considered a busy airport by any metric nor is it a mega hub. However the time it took from aircraft door to car was 2hr 50 min. No specific reasons such as missing luggage, immigration or quarantine/custom issues. It just took that...

    How much is fair for a 7 hour delay?

    Hello all, Was recently on an extensively delayed QFi service (QF117). The A/C was on the inbound QF118 the previous day, so had a 4 hour turnaround time in SYD. The flight was originally delayed for 2 hours at ~1500 (from 1550 to 1750), citing engineering issue. At this point the CX flight...

    What value should be placed on persistent delays?

    I'm curious to know what value AFF members place on a particular airline service persistently delaying their service which impacts on personal time. I believe it is acceptable to allow an airline to incur delays due to weather events which are beyond their control. However, if the airline...

    QF12 delayed 16/17th Dec

    Having caught this plane previously it does appear to have a late track record It took off quite late last night from LAX. Do they wait for passengers only and the luggage is dealt with later on another flight back to Aust to save time ? Thanks Edited to make more sense :)
