So-called 'tag flight' PR221 from DRW to BNE (which had earlier originated in MNL) on Saturday 5 November, the 0505 hours, took off at 0559 and so should arrive at around 1022, 42 minutes late. Aircraft is A320 RP-C8613. This will delay the returning BNE - DRW - MNL PR222.
Due to SYD being affected by strong winds and hence only using runway 25 for westerly departures (little use of the north-south runways) on the morning of Saturday 5 November, PR212, the 1130 hours SYD - MNL (A343 RP-C3439) took off at 1302. Arrival is suggested as 68 minutes behind time at 1758.
On Friday 23 December, PR210 from MEL to MNL took off at 1210 despite a timetabled pushback of 1010 hours. Arrival of A333 RP-C8771 should be at 1654, 84 minutes late.
PR212 from SYD to MNL is also delayed with A343 RP-C3439, the 1130 scheduled departure having taken off at 1306 with arrival suggested 70 late at 1800 tonight. QF19 (1225 SYD - MNL, A333 VH-QPG) is hot on its tail only three minutes behind PR212.
The Boxing Day day flight PR213 (1100 MNL - SYD) must have been too late to make the 2300 hours SYD curfew as it did not depart until 2037 for an overnight run down to SYD. RP-C8771 is likely to arrive at 0801 on 27 December instead of 2225 last night. As there was a typhoon affecting part of the largest island Luzon yesterday (called Nock-ten - unusual that a hyphenated name features), this may have been the cause as many other flights into and out of MNL were cancelled.
Expect it to depart as PR214 at about 0930 in lieu of the normal 0600 from SYD back to MNL.
The 26 December PR218 (2315 hours ex MNL to CNS, A320 RP-C8616) took off on Tuesday 27 at 0222 with arrival suggested as 1013 instead of 0740. This flight then proceeds to AKL.
Completing a troika of late flights, PR221, the 2200 hours from MNL to DRW and BNE took off at 0238 on Tuesday - a time when MNL airport is normally closed (0130 to 0330 hours) - and should arrive in the Northern Territory at 0826, 261 minutes later than the scheduled 0405 hours arrival. A321 Rp-C9917 is the aircraft: this flight is usually upgauged from an A320 to an A321 during the Christmas school holidays.
PR214 from SYD to MNL (thrice weekly) is often on time but that is not so on Thursday 29 December 2016, with A343 RP-C3439 having taken off at 0740 hours compared with a departure time of 0600; MNL arrival should be at about 1218, 63 minutes late.
The overnight MNL - SYD, PR211 (A333 RP-C8763) took off at 0009 on Friday 6 despite a timetabled Thursday 5 departure of 2230 hours. On Friday 6, it should arrive at roughly 1051, 81 minutes late, delaying the 1130 hours return SYD - MNL PR212 by at least half an hour.
