On Saturday 7 May, CZ321, the 0840 hours arrival in MEL from CAN (A333 B-8358) is expected to arrive about 50 minutes late at 0930. This may slightly delay the 1030 hours return flight.

The 2105 hours redeye from CAN to SYD, CZ325 (A333 B-5917) is far more severely delayed with arrival expected at 1135, three hours and 10 minutes late on Saturday 7 May, as it was not airborne this morning until 0055.

UPDATE: CZ326 from SYD back to CAN ended up departing at 1324 instead of 1105. Arrival is predicted as 2025 instead of 1850 so some time is anticipated to be gained en route.

CZ381, the 2115 hours Thursday 12 May from CAN to BNE (A333 B-8358) did not take off until 2214 and hence on Friday 13 should arrive at about 0855, half an hour late. AS the return CZ382 is scheduled to depart at 0955, it will be at least slightly late.

CZ325 ex CAN that should arrive on Saturday 14 May at 0825 will instead pull up at the gate at about 0925; aircraft is A333 B-5940. As the return flight, CZ326, is not timetabled to depart until 1105, it should be able to punctually depart.

A newish flight that runs three days a week, CZ3071 from SZX (itself a major city, but low profile in Oz) to SYD took off at 2201 on Wednesday 18 May despite a departure time of 1920 hours, and so on Thursday 19 May is about to arrive at roughly 0820 instead of 0615. Aircraft is A333 B-6501.

As noted in post 37 above, B-5940 was late yesterday (27 May) departing SYD due to the restricted runway operations thanks to the westerly winds. It then formed CZ321, the 2100 hours CAN - MEL that was not airborne until 2322 hours.

On Saturday 28 May, this flight is about to arrive in MEL at roughly 1030, an hour and 50 minutes late.

The Saturday 4 June 2016 CZ344 (1030 MEL - CAN) has been altered to depart at 1110. Arrival is still shown as on time at this early stage. The delay is because the inbound CZ321 A333 B-5939) is forecast to be at the MEL terminal at approximately 1000, 80 minutes late. It had not taken off from CAN until 2234 on Friday night despite a pushback timetabled slot of 2100 hours.

CZ3071 from SZX to SYD took off on Friday 3 June at 2207 despite a departure time of 1907, so is arriving in a wet SYD at about 0918 on Saturday 4 June, three hours and three minutes behind schedule. Aircraft is A333 B-6112.

UPDATE: The returning flight CZ3072 was airborne from SYD at 1149 and should be in Shenzen at roughly 1845 hours this evening, two and a half hours late, which is about half an hour better than this morning's flight managed to arrive in SYD.

CZ382 from BNE to CAN, the 0955 hours, took off at 1140 and should be in 'Canton' at about 1806, 71 minutes late with B-5970, an A333 as its aircraft.
