ZNL is due to land in MEL in less than an hour after flying west two-thirds of the way to PER and back to bring the total flight close to the 20 hour mark.

Based on time between ZNL going into repaint & delivery (7 weeks) and ZNM going into repaint over this weekend, latest ZNM would be due is late June. However with ZNL there were two C flights, and possibly extra time to prepare for the Sunrise test flight, so could be a lot earlier. Pre Covid, delivery was on average 5 days after the last C flight.

AFAIK there has been no news of ZNN since going into the factory for JV work in Nov 2022.

So Paine Field Blog later on 2nd came up with...
"NoE rework has been completed on ZB282 Qantas 787-9 VH-ZNN, it was moved out of the 45-12 yesterday to stall 101 for EME in-tank inspections. Goes to the 45-01 May 30 for a repaint."

On that basis, early July seems a likely delivery estimate. Timing on ZNM will give a better idea, although time in paint shop may be slightly longer that ZNL & ZNM.

ZNC is on its way back after repainting in PUS, currently flying as QF6020 PUS-SYD, ETA 2059. She was in PUS for 12 days.
