EK 412 was 7 hours late leaving Dubai on 28 Mar and will land at Sydney at 1.30pm on 29th. The onward flight to Christchurch has been cancelled and the return 413 will not operate at all. So it looks like the airplane will be grounded in Sydney.

Does anyone know what happened ?

And how pax will be re-routed ? Is there space on 419 ?

Appreciate any information.

Many thanks.

Don't believe so. They rather skip the trip to CHC to minimize the delay. Passengers will be rerouted for sure. Either on EK or whoever has seats available.  Smile

Correct.

Interesting that EK418 DXB-BKK-SYD-AKL is arriving into AKL at 1940 some 4.5 hours late today, if it left AKL at 2100 it would get to SYD at 2220 but wouldn't be able to depart before SYD curfew at 2300. But what AKL airport says is that also DXB-MEL-AKL EK406 is delayed into AKL from 1340 till 1535 but EK407 is delayed from 1850 till 2045 ex AKL. I wonder what is happening here.

For clarity the following flights are not operating:

412 SYD CHC
413 CHC to SYD and onto DXB.

Meanwhile 418 is now due AKL at 19.30. Not sure what is happening to 419.

Anyone know what happened to 412

Looks like a plane swap in Auckland.

406 (arr 15.45) will now turn into the 418 departure from AKL at 17.00. But it will now stay almost 3 hours in SYD departing 90 mins late at 21.20 presumably to take some of the 413 load.

418 (arr 19.30) will now be the 407 departure now timed to leave AKL at 21.00 as there in no curfew at MEL. It will leave MEL at 00.30.


Still does not explain why 412 has gone AWOL.

CHC today got 77W A6-EBO which was the EK418 aircraft and AKL gets the 345 that usually does SYD-CHC EK412.

So the 777 (EK418) went to CHC as 412 at midday.

The 340 (EK 412) left at 4.00pm to AKL as 418. When it gets to Auckland it will turn around as the late 407 to Melbourne and Dubai.

The 777 at CHC will then come back to SYD as 413 arriving at 7.30pm and then will become 419 this evening from SYD.

EK406 arriving nto Auckand this morning will be 419 from Auckland to Sydney and then 413 from Sydney to DXB.

The joys of EK's trans tasman flights is that they can make these sort of changes. Only problem is that the EK website says: 413 is "cancelled - for information about your party please contact Emirates."

One more thought/question. The only tech crew at CHC would have been an airbus crew - so they will have had to move crews between AKL and CHC as part of juggling these flights around.

Anyone know the details?
