It's there on a charter again. Routing was PIT-HNL-SYD. It will be there for 5 days I do believe. From what I hear a group of school children in PIT charted the plane for a trip to SYD.

The Pittsburgh diocese had about 600 people going to SYD. It was probably full. I don't know how much more it cost than going by scheduled flight. The flight was delayed for unspecified tech at PIT, according to the Post-Gazette.

The archDiocese of Pittsburgh put this trip together. The Roman Catholic church has enough coin...

If anyone knows exacly when the return flight is, please let us know; those of us in PIT are wondering when it comes back....or even if it is the same aircraft doing the return flight.

Fuel leak. Had to wait for a part to arrive. All in all, about a 12 hour delay.
