CX A330 In Darwin 30/6/05

Thu Jun 30, 2005 7:34 am

Hi all
A Cathay A330 landed in Darwin NT at approx 04.30 local time this morning. Not being a regular service came as a suprise. Any idea why ? common thoughts are medical requirments.
thank god i was not born a bird. this type of flying is much better

Looks like it was CX 107.

CX 107 operates HKG-AKL non-stop.
Are you sure it was an A330 and non at A343?

anyway, looks like the aircraft will get into SYD at 11.25, then head across to AKL at 18.25 [was due 11.25]

will now depart from akl to hkg at 21.30 instead of 1250.
as for the reason of the diversion.... cant help you!

The aircraft has gone to BNE instead of SYD for a crew change before going onwards to AKL.
