On Saturday 26 January, CA165 (PEK - MEL) is again delayed with arrival for A333 B-8579 suggested as 1650, 75 minutes behind schedule. It wasn't in the sky until 0212 so a faster trip than Silvia's last entry above.
CA165, the 0105 hours PEK down to MEL (A333 B-8689) on Sunday 7 April took off at 0126, basically on time, but arrival has become 1508, 33 late due to adverse winds. The returning CA166 is not timetabled to push back until 2000 hours this evening so in theory should be unaffected.
Thursday 11 April 2019 has seen CA174, the 1940 hours SYD - PEK (A333 B-8689), the early evening 1940 hours, not taking off until 2123. Suggested arrival is 0638 hours on Friday 12, 68 minutes behind schedule.
On Sunday 28 April 2019, CA173 (the scheduled 0110 hours from PEK down to SYD with A333 B-8383 was in the sky at 0826, seven hours or so tardy. This must have meant an uncomfortable night for travellers in all classes if the problem was not known until 0100 in the morning. SYD arrival tonight looks to be 2107 hours, 377 minutes behind the timetable. Fortunately CA173 has a very long layover to form CA174, the 1940 hours early evening from SYD back to PEK, so it should be able to be off blocks at 2220 or so if all goes well.
With extensive delays in SYD due to severe westerlies and resultant single runway operations, CA429 (A332 B-5927, the 0150 hours ex PEK that was airborne at 0245, about half an hour late) is arriving after holing near Pokolbin at about 1545, 65 late.
