In more on Sunday 2 May, A320 VH-VFX was initially on JQ745, 0720 hours morning SYD down to LST that took off if anything a couple of minutes ahead of time but was delayed (I assume due to fog), arriving LST at 1001 hours, 56 minutes tardy. It then operated JQ746, the 0945 hours LST back up to SYD, becoming airborne at 1039 for arrival 50 minutes late at 1210.

The aircraft was then rostered on JQ205 (1330 hours late lunchtime 'travel bubble' SYD - AKL which meant it had to get across to the international terminal. Takeoff was at 1424 with expected arrival at 1913, 38 behind.

JQ522 (1715 hours MEL - SYD) has been cancelled.

Fog in Sydney (and perhaps smoke haze from autumn burn offs?) is causing many delays into SYD on Monday 3 May's morning, which as usual will compound and take a while to recover from unless planes have significant timetabled gaps between flights later today.

A320 VH-VFK is operating the 0635 hours BNE down to SYD, JQ815 that was in the sky at 0804 (about 75 minutes tardy). Arrival should be at 0950 hours, 100 minutes behind schedule.

The 0620 hours from ADL across to SYD, JQ761 (A320 VH-VFJ) had a timetly liftoff at 0633 but has had to hold in the usual places above Gunning and then northeast of Goulburn, NSW so estimated arrival has become 0932, 47 minutes tardy.

The aircraft arrived in SYD at 0948 hours, and then formed JQ816, the 0900 hours SYD back up to BNE, airborne at 1102 for arrival at 1224 hours, 119 late. The next leg (BNE - MKY as JQ888 was the 1110 hours pointing skywards at 1319 for arrival at 1438 hours, 113 late. After that it flew back to BNE (JQ889, arriving at 1644, 114 late) and is now on JQ906, 1920 hours BNE - TSV that despite the long layover did not take off until 2007. Arrival is predicted as 2151, 31 minutes behind the timetable.

On Saturday 8 May 2021, JQ400, first of the morning at 0600 hours from SYD to OOL was cancelled, as was the 0605 hours SYD - CNS (JQ952).

JQ503 at 0630 hours (SYD - MEL) also got the boot, as will JQ816 (0900 hours SYD up to BNE) and JQ420 at 1015 hours (SYD - OOL).

Due to the panicky NZ Government's reaction to the Sydney 'two cases', JQ205 (1550 hours SYD - AKL) is cancelled for the second consecutive day.
JQ972 from MEL to PER is also not operating.

Flights between Sydney and NZ are also all cancelled on Sunday 9 May as the 'travel bubble' doesn't recommence until midnight on Sunday evening/Monday morning. So this means JQ205 (1330 hours SYD - AKL) again won't run.

On Friday 21 May 2021, JQd is cancelling quite a lot of SYD flights ex MEL. Those to (not) go include JQ508 at 0930 hours, JQ514 at lunchtime - 1300 , JQ518 mid afternoon at 1520 hours, JQ526 at 1845 hours and JQ530 at 1945 hours this evening.

JQ505 (0700 hours SYD - MEL) did not operate, and nor will JQ511 at 1045 hours, JQ515 (1230 hours), JQ519 at 1630, JQ523 at 1730 or JQ531 at 1755 hours on the same route and in the same direction. I'm guessing low bookings are to blame, which makes sense given how QFd and ZL are also experiencing lower than hoped for load factors, and VAd (like the other two longer established entrants than ZL) have also reduced frequencies on this major sector compared with three or four years ago.

JQ217, the 2330 hours late night 'red eye' to AKL from MEL has also got the boot.

Further cancellations are JQ772 earlier this morning at 0610 hours to ADL and JQ560 at 0700 to BNE, both ex MEL.

JQ520, the 1610 hours MEL - SYD was in the sky at 1720 hours with A320 VH-VQJ, so delayed arrival should be at 1832, 57 minutes behind the timetable.

Reflecting the pariah status of Victorians (with three of the four lockdowns having been the Victorian Government's fault), on Sunday 30 May 2021, from SYD to MEL, JQd is cancelling four scheduled flights and only operating three.

There is no Sunday morning service: only JQd flights are at 1435, 1815 and 1920 from SYD to MEL southbound.

This is a very sparse offering from JQd on what is normally Australia's busiest intercapital air route.

JQ824, the 1100 hours SYD - BNE is also cancelled.

Flightaware has JQ978, the evening CNS-PER service, diverting to ADL, with the course change occurring just after crossing the WA border - reason unknown. It will break curfew landing in ADL, although using Runway 05 the approach will be over the gulf rather than the suburbs, however pax probably unable to continue to PER until sometime Monday.

On Sunday 19 December 2021, A320 VH-VQR isn't having a good day.

Its second sector was JQ604, the 0815 hours MEL - SYD airborne at 0917, arriving 56 minutes late at 1031 AEDT. Next, it ran JQ721 91015 hours SYD down to HBT) but did not take off until 1210 hours, so arrival occurred at 1342, 92 behind. The return JQ720 (the 1250 hours) saw it in the air bang on 1430 mid afternoon, for arrival at 1634, 114 minutes tardy. Much rain enroute.

Thursday 23 December 2021 sees JQ785 the 1550 hours MCY to SYD arriving at 1926, 61 late with VH-VGI. It isn't alone in being at least an hour behind schedule.

Along with media reports of multiple JQ services ex SYD and MEL being cancelled today due to crew being identified as COVID-19 close contacts, both JQ769 ADL-SYD and JQ763 ADL-DRW have been cancelled this evening - likely for the same reason
As there are QF flights to both destinations departing shortly prior, hopefully the majority of affected pax have beeen rebooked accordingly.

Inbound to ADL this evening , JQ 682 (ex HBA), JQ768 (ex SYD) and JQ963 (ex CNS) are all cancelled

So far, it is better on Christmas Day, at least out of SYD, with five cancellations displaying and 51 remaining flights operating. As always there may be more flights that get the chop during the day.

JQ119 (0910 hours Sunday 16 January SYD - NAN) is not expected to push back until 1030.

FJ and QFi flights to NAN today are also delayed or cancelled.

Maybe this is due to worries about waves/tsunamis given what Tonga recently suffered?
