Seems there may be an issue with VH-ZNI ?

Yesterday's QF29 & QF30 Melbourne - Hong Kong rotation was cancelled, with ZNK switching to QF9 MEL-PER-LHR.

Now today's QF55 & QF56 Brisbane - Los Angeles rotation has been cancelled, with ZNA positioning from Brisbane to Melbourne, to take over the HKG flights.

There will need to be more shuffling and/or cancellations, as this leaves Brisbane short of a 787-9.

Interesting to read that Qantas had to off-load 90 passengers from yesterday's QF9 MEL-PER-LHR flight : 50 from the MEL-PER leg and a further 40 passengers from the PER-LHR leg, in order to give the flight enough range to bypass Iran on way to UK - with flight time extended by 50 minutes. EDIT : VH-ZNE has just landed after a 17 hour 56 minute flight.

Apparently due wind patterns, there was no need to do the same on QF10 !

No doubt this reduction/extension will be in place for some time.

Seems ZNA has gone back to Brisbane - a swap with ZNC which has just left Melbourne with today's QF9.

VH-ZNF operated the first Brisbane - Auckland service by a 787-9 today as QF119/QF126
