MU561 from PVG to SYD overnight ex the mainland Chinese commercial centre on Saturday 6 July (A359 B-304N) diverted to MEL, presumably due to fog in SYD as other flights such as PR211 also did so. It took off from MEL at 1117 hours so should be in SYD at about 1230 compared to scheduled arrival of 0900 hours.

Saturday 10 August 2019 has thus far seen most aircraft use the east-west runway, meaning delays.

MU750 from SYD to WUH (A332 B-8226) is the 1120 hours that was at 1238 about to take off, so it is at least 40 late.

Sunday 11th of August sees the red-eye MU561 PVG-SYD cancelled.

The red-eye MU737 PVG-MEL is delayed to depart at 12 00, 945 min behind schedule. This suggests that the return leg MU738 has a revised departure at 1 00, 840 min tardy. This new departure time is far from ideal.

On Monday 12 August, MU749, the 1915 hours WUH - SYD Sunday night (11) that took off at 2141, is arriving at a suggested 0940 hours, two hours late with A332 B-5943.

It was worse than Silvia had predicted, with MU738 departing MEL at 0506 hours on Monday 11 August and taking off at 0520 for estimated PVG arrival at 1327 this afternoon.

MU737 looks to be operating as 'MU737A' - presumably 'A' for 'altered' - with B789 B-1111 on this 2015 hours PVG - MEL of Sunday 11 August not airborne until 0012 on Monday 12, so arrival is 1158 hours, 178 late.

Saturday 31 August's redeye from PVG down to MEL, MU739 (A332 B-5936), the 0020 hours, took off at 0057. Arrival is likely at 1328, 48 late. Going back, MU740 has a scheduled departure at 2130 tonight so it should be unaffected.
