With the weather in Sydney earlier seeing winds at the airport gusting to 56kmh - by 1830 hours they'd died down to a less severe 43kmh - many aircraft have had to hold on approach.

EK413 is the 1805 hours CHC - SYD (A380 A6-EDC) that took off about 20 minutes early - early, not late - at 1803 hours. Arrival however is a different story, expected at 2001, 36 late as the aircraft has been held about 150km offshore.

Sunday 20th of Oct finds EK412 DXB-SYD (A388 A6-EUS) airborne at 12 22 and now has a revised arrival at 8 33, 93 min tardy. This will undoubtedly delay the SYD-CHC sector scheduled for tomorrow at 8 45 hours.

The afternoon and early evening of Monday 25 November is seeing storms in and around Sydney, so timekeeping is adversely affected. EK417 from SYD to DXB, the 1655 hours was airborne at 1813 (about an hour late) with B773ER A6-EQG. Arrival on Tuesday 26 should be 52 late at 0122 hours.

Saturday 11 January has the usually punctual EK412 DXB-SYD (A388 A6-EUF) with a revised arrival at 10 22, 202 tardy. This will delay the departure of subsequent leg SYD-CHC. This service on 12 January has a tentative departure at 11 30

Also, EK408, the red-eye DXB-MEL (A388 A6-EET) was airborne at a very painful 5 14, arrival is now suggested at 00 57, 97 behind

In further, EK406 DXB-MEL (A388 A6-EOE) also departed behind schedule and is expected tomorrow at 8 42, 137 min late.

EK414 DXB-PER (B77W A6-ECC) is predicted to arrive at 4 29, 259 min behind original schedule.

Update - Heavy rain and flooding in Dubai have caused significant delays to both arrivals and departures today.

EK434D - yesterday’s cancelled flight was rescheduled to 12 midday Dubai time. Still at the gate at 3:45pm. Daughter on the flight (QF code share). Currently departing at 4pm but this is the 6th time change today. If it leaves at 4pm arrival will be around 11:45am tomorrow.
The scheduled EK434 today is 2:45 late arriving at 9:30am tomorrow.

A very rainy morning on Friday 17 January 2020 in Sydney sees EK412, the 0845 hours SYD - CHC (A380 A6-EUG) taking off at 1016 hours so arrival at gate should be roughly 1500 hours mid afternoon, an even hour late.

The Monday 3 February 2020 scheduled EK416 (B773ER VH-EGA, the 2250 hours DXB down to SYD) did not become airborne until 0006 hours on Tuesday, so expected arrival is 2023 hours, 43 minutes late.

B772LR A6-EWH on EK441, the Saturday 15 February 2235 hours redeye from ADL up to DXB did not take off until 0956 hours on Sunday 16, so anticipated Middle East arrival has become 1614 hours, 659 minutes behind schedule. It had arrived as EK440D (delayed) this morning in ADL at 0822 hours, so a quick turnaround for an aircraft of this size.

The ADL - DXB EK441 is again delayed overnight, the second consecutive day this has occurred. On Monday 17 February, A6-EWF (B772LR) took off at 0624 with a 1247 hours (452 minutes behind schedule) arrival expected.

With Australia's National Cabinet having decided to further reduce the number of permitted weekly travellers entering Australia to BNE and ADL to 500 a week and SYD to 1505 a week (and leaving Victoria, already below 'capacity' at 1100 a week), EK has announced that it will be cancelling all flights from DXB to BNE (the last to arrive today, Saturday 16 January 2021) and to SYD and MEL (the last to arrive both on Tuesday 19 January).

EK says it remains committed to Australia, and continues to operate twice weekly DXB - PER flights.

It looks like that Emirates just pushed through another set of cancellations ex-SYD. I was booked on the Friday evening flight on 6 May 2022 which has now been cancelled and they re-booked me onto Saturday morning ex-SYD but did not yet amend the connection in DXB. It looks like that Wed & Fr flights are cancelled.

Does that make sense to anyone given that we are just to open up? Why would EK cancel entire days in May 2022 now when there is still so much uncertainty?

Thursday 2 December 2021 sees EK417 and EK413, respectively the 1655 and 2145 hours SYD - DXB cancelled. That leaves EK415, also a 2145 hours as the only flight northwest bound on this route today.
