After sitting on the ground in MEL since May, VKB is heading to SIN as JQ8991 - is this for maintenance?

Has there been any talk about re-painting the JQ fleet in the new livery ?

Can someone please give me the date that Jetstar B788 VH-VKH returned to service after its period of storage and whether it was one of the JQ Dreamliners that didn't end up going to ASP from AVV.

Many thanks for the information.

News item from Australian Aviation about the current unserviceability for Jetstar's 787s.

Quote:
Jetstar has blamed a freak series of events including a lightning and bird strike for grounding multiple 787s.

On Tuesday, it emerged the problems also led the budget airline to cancel flights to Phuket and Japan alongside its earlier cancellations to Bali.

Jetstar chief pilot Jeremy Schmidt revealed, “Unfortunately, our Boeing 787 fleet has been impacted by a number of issues, including a lightning strike, a bird strike, damage from an item on the runway and delays sourcing a specific spare part for one of our aircraft due to global supply chain challenges. The part has to be road freighted across the US."
https://australianaviation.com.au/20...-jetstar-787s/

According to FlightAware the Jetstar 787s not currently operating with their last flights are:

VKA - flew MEL - SIN 23/8/22. This or VKB maybe the aircraft that suffered the bird strike.
VKB - flew BKK - MEL 31/8/22. This or VKA maybe the aircraft that struck debris on the runway.
VKJ - flew MEL - PUS 24/8/22. Presumably for planned maintenance.
VKL - flew OOL - SYD 17/6/22. After lightening strike.

I thought that Jetstar would have redeployed some of their A320s, A321s or their new A321neo to DPS to take and bring home passengers, even if having to make a refuelling stop in DRW. They must be short of aircraft or crew to not be able to redeploy a few of their narrow bodied fleet, even for an overnight return flight. Maybe they have and still face aircraft shortages. I know that the A321neo is due to fly to DPS today but this looks to be a flight previously planned.

Interestingly, avherald hasn't reported either of those top two issues so its difficult to find any further information.

I can add a little from what I've read;

* Debris strike reportedly occurred at SGN
* Bird strike reportedly lead to a cracked windscreen which needed to be changed.
* 2nd NEO still under manufacture and hasn't flown as yet (no help there)
