QF9 Melbourne to Perth cancelled again today. Anyone have any updates on what's going on with ZNJ? I'm guessing they would want to have this sorted very quickly with the peak Xmas travel season about to begin.

Yeah I was going to travel on the QF9 to Perth today until just before I got to the airport saying it was cancelled and instead have been put on QF777.

ZNJ will back in service tonight operating QF95 after a hydraulic leak. ZNF will turnaround to operate QF9 from operating QF10

No, this is simply due to the fact that for the second time this week, VH-ZNF will turn around in Perth having arrived in the early afternoon with QF10 from LHR, and later this afternoon operate today's QF9 PER-LHR sector.

With ZNJ apparently still out of service, I suspect tonight's QF95/QF96 rotation will also be cancelled.

All these recent issues with the Qantas 787-9s no doubt had some impact on the decision reported on "The Qantas Source" today that Qantas will go with the A350-1000 for the Project Sunrise flights.

Seems the VH-ZNJ hydraulic leak is more troublesome than sources believed, as tonight's QF95 has been cancelled.
