On Good Friday (19 April), what appears to be a positioning flight, TT9021, is operating from BNE down to SYD, having pushed back at 0706 hours. Aircraft is A320 VH-VNC. It had to hold for a while in the usual position west of Pokolbin.
TT560 (Monday 22 April, the 1300 hours MEL - OOL up up and away at 1416 with B738 VH-VUD) looks like arriving at 1614 hours, 69 late. This will delay TT561, the 1535 hours mid afternoon OOL - MEL to at least 1645 in departure.
Southbound TT585 from CNS down to MEL (VH-YVA, also a B738) should arrive at 1529, 39 late. www.airfleets.net still lists this as a VA plane, so has it recently been transferred to TT or is this a one off holiday 'wet lease' operation?
TT243, the Friday 26 April 2019 scheduled 1405 hours afternoon SYD down to MEL (A320 VH-VND) was up up and away at 1520 so arrival has become a suggested 1657 hours, 77 late.
Later, TT263, also a SYD - MEL but A320 VH-VNC, took off at 1933, 133 minutes after scheduled at gate departure, so arrival is likely at 2051, 116 late.
TT642 on Sunday 28 April has A320 VH-XUH and is the 1730 hours late afternoon ADL across to SYD airborne at 1937, just under two hours late. Predicted mainland Harbour City arrival has become 2137 hours, 107 late.
Tt229, the Thursday 2 May 2019 scheduled SYD down to MEL at 1000 hours (A320 VH-VNH) did not become airborne until 1242. Arrival should be at 1358, 143 minutes behind schedule. This aircraft must be substituting for a failed colleague, as it arrived in SYD at 1128, 38 minutes tardy this morning on TT673 ex CFS and was requisitioned to run the Melbourne.
TT669 (Friday 3 May 2019, the timetabled 1625 hours CBR down to MEL with A320 VH-VNH) was airborne at 1811. Expected arrival is 95 late at 1910 hours as MEL is very busy (as one expects at this time on most Friday evenings). This plane arrived bang on time at 1220 hours on TT226, the 1055 hours late morning MEL up toYD but it was then all downhill for passengers (and the airline) with TT241, the 1255 hours SYD - MEL not in the sky until 1424 and consequently a similar delay to the MEL - CBR TT668.
TT572, the 1925 hours MEL - OOL is next so if the aircraft can turn around in 35 minutes - not always achievable - it may only be 20 minutes orso late. Unfortunately however delays often compound at this time at the end of the week.
The 1825 hours early evening MEL - HBA (TT505) is expected to depart an hour late.
Later on Monday 13 May, the same aircraft as in the post above, A320 VH-XUG was on TT381, the afternoon 1645 hours BNE down to SYD that took off at 1810. Expected arrival is 1927, 67 late, so from roughly 1000 this morning in nine and a half hours it has had a net gain of about 20 minutes on the schedules and layovers.
