Yep, and it hurt with two small children after a 1600 airport arrival. 3am arrival home not ideal.

Apparently late aircraft inbound from AKL.

Pax were given FJ$20pp food and beverage vouchers to spend in the airport.

On the plus side, immigration and customs were a breeze and our bags came out as we reached the carousel so tarmac to door ~30mins (0130 landing --> onto kerbside by 2am and wlaked straight onto long term carpark bus where we got a "personal chauffeur service" to our car as we were the only pax aboard!).

Felt sorry for the lovely cabin crew who then had to work the flight back! Ouch.

docjames, sorry to hear as indeed it must have been difficult with small children who want to sleep at that hour.

With F$20 = A$12.83 generosity must know no bounds at FJ! How magnanimous of the airline. What would A$13 buy at an airport per person?

We had F$80 between the 4 of us (2A/2C) and spent ~ F$55 (without buying drinks as we were in the lounge).

The food options in the (newly renovated) Nadi are Burger King, Pizza, Gloria Jeans and assorted sandwiches etc.

F$20pp is reasonable at local pricing.

There was also a meal served straight after takeoff.

Re: General Fiji Airways Delays/Cancellations/etc. Discussion

On Monday 31 October, FJ941 (0755 hours early morning from NAN to SYD, B738 DQ-FJM) took off at 0808 which is on time or even a tad early, but arrival is not expected until 1203 hours, 33 minutes behind time.

UPDATE: FJ940, the 1230 hours departure back to NAN just took off at 1328 so it will be delayed arriving in Fiji.

Re: General Fiji Airways Delays/Cancellations/etc. Discussion

Friday 11 November may not be the best day to remember for passengers on FJ914, the 0630 SYD - NAN (B738 DQ-FJG) as takeoff was not until 0938 with arrival suggested as about 1600 instead of 1225.

In the other direction, FJ911 (0900 hours NAN - SYD) took off at a very punctual, slightly ahead of time 0909 but arrival of A332 DQ-FJU should be at 1212, 42 minutes late. It has not helped that the plane was in a holding position east of STYD for a few minutes.

The Wednesday 21 December FJ931 from NAN to MEL that is timetabled to arrive at 2150 hours mid evening should instead do so at 0030 hours on Thursday 22. This is expected to delay FJ930 from MEL back to NAN from its normal pushback at 2250 on Wednesday to 0130 hours on Thursday.

Due to the 0520 hours Monday 25 September SYD radar failure, FJ914 (B738 DQ-FJH, the 0630 hours SYD - NAN) took off at 0727 so arrival in the island paradise should be at about 1258 early this afternoon, 38 late.
