With bad weather in MEL (heavy rain and some hail, latter not in every suburb), FJ931, the Wednesday 10 July 2019 scheduled 1850 hours NAN - MEL that took off ahead of time at 1858 with A332 DQ-FJO is arriving at 2330 hours, 65 late. It had to hold above Mt Buller for a couple of lengthy racetrack circuits.

It appears FJ910 SYD-NAN is routinely ~ 1 hour late.It was 55 minutes late on 12/12 when we were on it.Aircraft was at the gate early,boarded a little late the sat on the plane for 45 minutes before taking off at 1405.
Our son and his family had exactly the same experience 21/12.
We had been watching the arrival time for the flight from 16/12 to 20/12 when we were staying at Momi Bay as it's flight path had it flying past our bure on descent into NAN.However arrival time on those days was between 2014 and 2027 being after dark.

Definitely something to consider especially if you are connecting through to LAX on FJ810. Only 150 minutes connection time if the flight is punctual

Here's another FJ910 entry, but during coronavirus.

On Friday 22 May this scheduled 1300 hours lunchtime SYD - NAN departed at about 1700. FR24 and FlightAware don't have the exact takeoff times on their sites, nor the aircraft rego (tail) number.

The inbound FJ915 (B738 DQ-FAH) on Saturday 15 January 2022 from NAN to SYD was punctual, arriving at 1848 hours, 32 minutes realy.

However on Sunday 16, SYD to NAN FJ914, the 0830 hours, is expected to depart at 1100. I don't know if this is due to tsunami-related worries in Fiji given Tonga experienced those large waves in the last 36 or so hours.

FJ910, the 1400 hours SYD - NAN is also delayed, being expected to push back three hours late.
