Anyone know what happened with XNW?

It's making its first visit to Perth as JQ978 due at 23:30.

That doesn't explain why it sat on the ground in CNS for 5 days and performed a test flight before operating CNS PER

The return flight last Wednesday was taken by VFJ which arrived in CNS from DRW 90 mins before XNW, but still didnít leave CNS for another hour after XNW arrived. Together with operating a test flight at CNS 5 days later, Iíd say itís pretty likely XNW went tech.

I'm not privy to that information so can't comment on why it was on the ground for a few days Tristan.

New fleet lemon maybe

XNW flew to Perth overnight only to have further issues there and not return to CNS.

It had issues on delivery from Singapore to MEL and diverted to ADL a week or so ago.

Oh I'm sure she went tech, my curiosity was wondering why , and yeah - given she had to divert to ADL on delivery suggests some gremlins with her.. hopefully they've found them all!

Does anyone know the whereabouts of A320 VH-XJE as she does not appear to have flown for a long time ?
