On Wednesday 8 June 2016, GA715, the 1025 SYD to DPS took off at 1042 but with A333 PK-GPZ as its aircraft will not arrive until about 1520 hours, 40 minutes late, as there may be substantial headwinds slowing it down.
GA713, the Saturday 18 June 1100 SYD - CGK took off at 1135 but arrival of A333 Pk-GPL is not expected until about 1634, 49 minutes late, presumably due to a headwind that is resulting in the plane travelling at an indicated groundspeed of 674 kilometres an hour over central Australia.
GA715 (SYD - DPS) will be 33 minutes late in arriving at 1513. PK-GHA is the A333 for at least the third consecutive day.
Once more, GA715 is delayed, this time on Sunday 19 June with takeoff from SYD at 1120 of A333 PK-GHA being about 35 minutes late; arrival in DPS is suggested as 1535, 55 minutes late. PK-GHA is a regular visitor to our shores as previous entries above demonstrate.

Yesterday among others JQ and TT flights were cancelled due to an ash cloud emanating from Mt Rinjani, but media are reporting that the atmosphere is sufficiently clear today to enable flights to resume which is good news for holidaymakers stranded overnight.
Tuesday 9 August 2016 is windy in MEL with GA718 ex DPS arriving at about 0846, 106 minutes late with A333 PK-GPT. The plane did not take off until 0148 hours this morning despite a departure time of 2330 on Monday 8 August.
Unlike last week when it was merely late, GA718 that normally arrives in MEL on Tuesday mornings has been cancelled. The Tuesday 16 August 0900 back to DPS ex MEL, GA719, naturally will also not operate.
