Saw this article on Australian Aviation whilst browsing the news earlier today:

Per the article:
Less than half of Qantas departures from both Sydney and Melbourne airports were on time during April – significantly lower than all its major rivals.

To be fair, I can't comment directly on how much of an on-time machine QF is given I don't regularly fly with them (preferring to travel with their upscale brand, JétStar). But would be interesting to hear people's experiences flying QF recently with regards to on time performance. One benefit of flying an airline with poor on time performance is the potential for collecting compensation for late arrivals. For instance, a major delay on a route like SYD to MEL could yield €600 compensation per EU261, if that sector was part of a larger trip (i.e. AMS to MEL).

OTP was a shocker for the entire industry last month. Wouldn't be a surprise to anyone who had to fly during April, especially from SYD or MEL.

Worst OTP since records began in 2003, according to the Bureau of Infrastructure and Transport Research Economics.

A few flight in March were on time. All flights in April delayed by 30-45 minutes. Though that admittedly was in peak non delivery of bags.
