Agreed Michael. ZNL has operated it twice now and ZNN on its first trip today on the QF63. ZNL is currently operating QF341 from SYD to LAS for the first of the NRL charters. I believe another departs BNE on Thursday.

Incident: Qantas B789 over Pacific on Apr 14th 2024, electrical problem
By Simon Hradecky, created Tuesday, Apr 16th 2024 15:46Z, last updated Tuesday, Apr 16th 2024 15:46Z

A Qantas Boeing 787-9, registration VH-ZNH performing flight QF-76 (dep Apr 13th) from Vancouver,BC (Canada) to Sydney,NS (Australia), was enroute at FL330 over the Pacific Ocean about 1550nm southwest of Honolulu,HI (USA) when the crew decided to turn around and divert to Honolulu. The crew advised ATC they did have a minor technical problem, accepted an ILS approach to runway 04R at first but subsequently requested runway 08L due to winds, on final approach to Honolulu's runway 08L the crew advised tower, they would have their flaps fully down after landing due to a technical fault. The aircraft landed safely on runway 08L about 3:05 hours after turning around.

A passenger reported the crew announced they had some electrical/generator issue. After being kept at the airport for about 9 hours the onward flight was cancelled.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Honolulu about 48 hours after landing.
