Atmrp, looking at the previous post, my guess is that the aircraft will have about three hours in SYD (assuming no further delays approaching either SIN or SYD, or in SIN) before forming your delayed QF1.Am booked to fly QF1 SYD - SIN Tuesday 10th. Qantas already advising it’s delayed till 2000. Related to the delay of VH-OQD in Singapore?
Due to crew rest requirements, unfortunately QF1 tomorrow night, delayed as it is, will have an enforced stop in SIN from a suggested 0225 to 0620 - four hours in the night - yuk - before arriving LHR at 1305 hours on Wednesday, 390 minutes late.
Sure, passengers with status and those booked in the higher classes, or those willing to shell out for one of the pay-per-use lounges can "luxuriate" but at 0330 most of us want to obtain shuteye. That's difficult in a brightly lit area with passengers and staff moving around.
