    CZ321 into MEL this morning (Sunday 24 May 2015) that normally arrives at 0840 has been delayed until 1123, probab;ly another 'victim' of the extensive flight (and ATC) delays due to bad weather in the Hong Kong SAR and environs. as there is only one CZ flight today in and out of MEL, the latter not departing until a timetabled 2230 tonight, this should be a standalone delay.

    CZ321 into MEL this morning (Tuesday 18 August 2015) ex CAN is expected in the Victorian capital at 1051 in lieu of 0840. Aircraft is A333 B-5939. Today, there is no return flight until CZ322 at 2230 so that ought not suffer any delay from the inbound being behind time.

    Saturday 12 August's CZ343 into MEL from CAN has been delayed from 2030 hours to a forecast 2154. In turn, CZ322 back to CAN is expected to be delayed for 45 minutes until 2315.

    The 1125 Friday 4 December CZ326 A380 from SYD to PVG did not take off until 1304 this afternoon and should arrive at 1842 rather than 1735. B-6138 is operating this flight: it entered passenger carrying service on 25 February 2010, somewhat earlier than I might have casually thought as CZ has generally had a fairly low profile among most Australians or in the media here.

    CZ325 (B-6139, an A380) is just landing in SYD about 45 minutes late on Monday 7 December at 1004 as it took off from CAN at 2218 last night despite its timetabled departure of 2100. CZ is an airline that during the Australian summer has increased its weekly flights to MEL from 14 ('double daily' to employ that overused term) to 18.

    CZ326 back to CAN is supposed to depart at 1125 so it will be late.

    Delayed by storms in SYD that sttarted at about 2000 hours on Wednesday 9 December, CZ301 (A333 B-5917), the 0825 hours from CAN to SYD is about to land at 2108 hours, so it should be about 35 minutes late pulling up at the gate at 2115. CZ302 is due out at 2215 hours so it will be late, but touch wood as it should depart before 2250 hours and hence 'make' the 2300 hours SYD curfew.

    CZ301 (A333 B-5917) on 10 December 2015 is about 50 minutes late into SYD tonight at 2130, being just about to land. As with yesterday, its 2215 return to CAN will be delayed. It would not want to be a lot later to conform with teh SYD curfew.

    A feature of CZ's operations during the Oz summer period is the return of its A380 to one SYD flight.

    On Sunday 20 December 2015, the 1125 SYD to CAN did not depart until 1219 but hopefully should only be 20 minutes late in arriving at 1755. B-6140 is the aircraft.

    CZ301 arrived SYD at 2115 hours on Wednesday 30 December 2015, 35 minutes behind time. This should still give sufficient time for the returning CZ302 to CAN to depart quite a while before the 2300 hours SYD curfew takes effect.

    CZ326 from SYD to CAN on New Year's Day 2016 took off at 1224, 59 minutes after it was timetabled to push back, and will therefore pull in at about 1815, 40 minutes late with A380 B-6137 undertaking the task.

    On Friday 8 January 2016, CZ325, the 0925 hours arrival in SYD ex CAN will not be the at the gate until an expected 1045.

    As a result, the return CZ326, the 1125 SYD to CAN took off at 1249 and should arrive at about 1855, 80 minutes late.

    The earlier CZ601 is 40 minutes late, pulling in at 0725 in SYD.

    The A80 operating the 1125 CZ326 SYD to CAN, B-6140, did not take off until 1313 this afternoon (Monday 11 January) and hence will arrive at about 1835, an hour late.

    On Monday 15 February CZ326, the 1125 SYD to CAN did n0ot take off until 1322. With A380 B-6136 as the aircraft, it should arrive an hour and a half behind time at about 1905 this evening.

    CZ is not having its best day for its Australian operations. On Sunday 21 February, CZ326 has been delayed for an expected 125 minutes until 1330 hours for its departure from SYD for CAN, meaning a likely 1900 hours arrival, 85 minutes late. Earlier, CZ602 departed SYD 58 minutes late at 0913 although this flight is expected to be three minutes early into CAN at 1457 if the QF website properly reflects the timings.
