MEL_Traveller, in the recent past - last few months - when there is a problem with lack of B788 JQ availability, MEL - DPS seems to be first choice to cancel. This may be because JQ is now supposedly (as it likes to say - ugh!) "double daily."Looks like Bali is being hard hit by 787 cancellations. Tomorrow's JQ35 MEL-DPS is cancelled. This appears to be in addition to the flight on 19 April from SYD to DPS which is cancelled.
Interesting that there's a charter flight MEL-CGO (Zhengzhou) operated by JQ's 787 on behalf of Australia Comfort Travel Group. That's flying tomorrow and Saturday (and the next couple of Wednesdays and Saturdays). It seems open for reservation by regular pax.
So the charter flight flies, but regular pax left stranded? (Or perhaps they've been reaccommodated?)
