Monday 19 August 2019 has been a difficult day with fog in BNE and at least sometime during the morning, MEL and SYD down to single runway operation. TT384, the 1910 hours SYD - BNE (A320 VH-VNH) took off at 2011 so arrival is likely at 2124 hours, 44 late.
TT464 (1415 hours ADL across to MEL, A320 VH-XUG) took off at 1456 on Friday 23 August with arrival suggested as 1643 hours, 38 late after having to hold above Bendigo, as have quite a few other aircraft. It looks as if MEL is down to single runway operations, creating delays: confirmation from anyone at the airport would be appreciated.
Just what the doctor ordered during Friday's afternoon peak period!
B738 VH-VOY on TT413 (1545 hours MEL - PER) was still queuing for takeoff as at 1642 so will be at least 40 late arriving.
TT700 (MEL to CFS, the 0705 hours early morning on Monday 26 August) was not airborne until 0908, so B738 VH-VOY's arrival will be delayed until 1038 hours, 98 late. It arrived a minute early in MEL at 0549 ex PER on TT424, so no obvious reason for the delay.
TT243 (1405 hours SYD - MEL) took off at a very late 1713 hours on Thursday 29 August. B738 VH-VUD was holding above Mt Buller as at 1812 hours so arrival may be tardier than the predicted 1832 hours (172 late.)
The 1720 hours on the same route, TT263 was in the sky at 1813 so A320 VH-VND should arrive at 1832, 37 late.
TT381 (1645 hours BNE - SYD) took off at 1731 and as at 1832 was holding above Broke, NSW (an unfortunate metaphor.) A320 VH-XUG should arrive at around 1905, 45 late.
Later on 29 August, TT384 (A320 VH-XUG, the 1850 hours northbound SYD - BNE up up and away at 2012) should arrive 65 late at 2125 mid evening.
TT262, the 1830 hours MEL - SYD, airborne at 1918 (about 35 late) with A320 VH-VNH, has had a horror run with holding initially necessary above Tumut, then above Gunning and finally north of Goulburn. Arrival should be at about 2122 hours, 87 minutes behind schedule, so a net loss of roughly 53 minutes.
Saturday 31 August 2019 has TT252, the 1515 hours MEL - SYD not airborne until 1804, so arrival for B738 VH-VUB should be 1912, 152 minutes tardy. It must be substituting for a failed aircraft as it arrived in MEL on TT504 ex HBA at 1715, only 10 minutes late and then as quickly as possible formed TT252.
