Thanks for that EK, had to turn the scanner up to make sure I heard right that it was QF11. But thought it probably would be maintenance related.

Thanks Again

Just another heads up....QF005/QF031 departed late due to late release from maintenance....

A number of the international flights departed 1-2 hours late due to industrial action (baggage/ground staff)...

Sympathy action?
