Just as a data point Adl to Syd 9am flight was cancelled Monday. VA paid for mum to go on QF
Very important that we get this sort of information, as it tells AFFers what they can expect (or negotiate for.) So an important 'data point.'

It shows the slackness of bookings at present when the competitor's flight has spare seats. One might expect a Monday departure ex ADL at 0900 to be busy, because it's the start of the traditional working week.

On a stormy Melbourne afternoon, VA229 (B738 VH-VUP, the 1440 hours across to ADL that took off at 1536 should arrive at 1616 hours, 46 minutes past the timetable.

The 1400 hours MEL - SYD, VA849 (VH-VUA) was not in the sky until 1538 hours so at gate arrival should be about 1650, 85 minutes tardy.

VA811 (Monday 17 February, the 0700 hours MEL - SYD) did not take off until 0728 hours, about 17 late. A332 VH-XFJ did not arrive until 0856, 31 late.

ATR72 VH-FVQ on VA1174, the 0805 hours morning SYD - ABX had not become airborne by 0916 so is running at least an hour late.

With the thunderstorms in MEL at around 1840 hours, VA347 (1800 hours MEL up to BNE, B738 VH-YFC) was airborne at 1858 so suggested arrival becomes 2002 hours, 52 minutes tardy.

VA875 (1800 hours early evening MEL up to SYD) was in the sky about 1849, about 35 late. VH-YFY is however not arriving until 2045, 85 lat, as with storms around the Wollongong area south of Sydney, it had to fly to north of Dubbo before turning east and then south to land from the north.

Later on Sunday 23 February, VA287 (1845 hours MEL up to CBR) was airborne at 2000 hours. Suggested arrival for ATR72 VH-FVQ is 2100 hours mid evening, 45 behind. This is normally a B738, but the week coming may not be a Federal Parliamentary sitting week so passenger numbers on a Sunday night will be far lower.

Overnight VA46 (B738 VH-YIM) DPS-BNE made a medical diversion to ASP. It was on the ground just over an hour before departing at 0403 (ACST), arriving BNE 2 hours late at 0705 (AEST).

VA804 (Thursday 27 February, the 0630 hours SYD down to MEL that did not take off until 0808) should arrive at 0924 hours, 79 minutes late. The very welcome A332 VH-XFJ is the operating aircraft. This plane did not have any duties yesterday but had come in from HKG nine minutesw early yesterday morning at 0731, so it may have required maintenance,

VA679 (0915 hours MEL - PER) and VA686 (1205 hours PER - MEL) will be delayed as a consequence.

The 1600 hours afternoon MEL - BNE, VA337 has got the flick.

VA859 (Sunday afternoon, 1 March 2020 with B738 VH-YVC) is the 1600 hours MEL up to SYD airborne at 1712, arrival at gate being suggested as 1826, 61 late as there's much traffic fairly closely ahead of it.

The 1400 hours on the same route is far worse, with VA849 (VH-YFK) not pointing skywards until 1655 hours, so arrival should be 1803 hours, 158 minutes tardy.

Southbound SYD down to MEL VA858 is the 1600 hours in the sky at 1713 hours. VH-VUZ looks to be arriving 55 minutes tardy at 1830 hours.
