On Thursday 4 April 2019, MU749 from WUH down to SYD is badly late, with arrival of A332 B-5975 expected at 1212 hours, 212 minutes behind schedule.

Fortunately, this plane has a fairly lengthy layover so MU750 returning, the 1220 hours should only be about 65 - 75 minutes late departing if all goes well.

MU738, the 1100 hours Thursday 20 June MEL - PVG (A333 B-1112) took off at 1412 with arrival mooted as 2218 tonight, 158 late. This flight was formed by MU739 that isn't due into MEL until 1240 hours, so presumably some previous problem.
