The FZ 471 arrived in BEG around 3 hours late after a strange stop-over in Sofia.

The return leg has been cancelled altogether.

A pretty bad start for a maiden fight.

Does anyone have any info on what happened? Major technical incident?

Looking at the other flights being delayed I suppose that there must have been a lot of fog in Belgrade. I know that some days ago some flights were delayed/cancelled as well.

I just checked and the flight landed today at 14:33 from Sofia, in stead of 11:55.

I just looked back at the weather in BEG for it's original arrival time at it was very foggy, so i'm sure that explains the Sofia technical stop.

DXB-BEG-DXB is only a little longer than U2's LTN-TLV-LTN flight, so it's quite possible they also operate out and back with the same crew. A three hour wx delay on the inbound would almost certainly time them out for the return and cancel the flight.

flydubai flight FZ741 from Dubai to Belgrade on Thursday, Nov 10 diverted to Sofia due to severe fog at Belgrade airport. After a short delay the flight departed Sofia and landed safely in Belgrade. After a quick turnaround the flight was ready to depart for Dubai when it was then subject to a delay from Euro Control in Brussels. This pushed the crew beyond their legally allowed operating hours.

Passengers were given refreshments and accommodated overnight in nearby hotels. The flight departed Belgrade at 9am on Friday, Nov 11 and landed without incident at Dubai International Airport at 5.15pm.

This was a very unfortunate set of circumstances which was beyond our control. flydubai has an On Time Performance record of 85pc, which is one the best in the industry, and we understand how disappointing delays of this nature are to our customers. Of course this was especially disappointing since it was our first flight to Belgrade.

Another delay today, 1 hour. Doubt that it's weather related since no other flights are seeing delays.

Teething problems of a new route.... I'm sure they'll get their ducks in a row soon.

That or the fact that it leaves Dubai during the morning rush hour.

Just saw that flydubai will be adding more flights to Belgrade during the Christmass holidays. Additional flights operate on 28.12/ 30.12/ 04.01.
All flights are operated with their B737-800.
