With almost cyclonic conditions in SE Queensland there must be flights being cancelled, delayed or diverted, although where would they be diverted to? International flights might be diverted to NTL or SYD but latter would be incredibly busy at this time of year.
FYI-OOL & MCY runways are only ~200 metres from the beach & main runways parallel to surf beaches, many of which have been closed for most of last few days due to high winds & therefore big seas. BNE main runway abutts Moreton bay.
Normally at this time of the year inbound flights into all 3 are full with holiday makers coming to the Sunhsine State.
Presume other airports up the Queensland coast are also effected, ie. PPP, HTI, TSV, CNS etc. to name a few.
