Default LOT repatriation flight from Sydney

According to the LOT Polish Airlines site they will be operating a repatriation flight from Sydney to Warsaw this Saturday 28/3/20 . The flight is timetabled to depart at 23:55hrs and operated by a 787-9 . The flight number is LO8549. The departure time is within the curfew so Iím not sure if that is 100% correct .

No further details . The LOT website is showing the SYD flight as no longer available on the the 28th March , so I’m not sure what’s going on there . Perhaps it’s already sold out ? . Time will tell I suppose .

The number of additional LOT repatriation flights from Heathrow to Warsaw has been staggering, mostly 787s, also extra 737s. Some days an extra 4-5 flights!

I was on Flightaware just now. Checked all the LOT 787's and it seems like SP-LSA will be the one flying into Sydney (currently on its way to Singapore from Bangkok). However one thing I do find odd is that Flightaware is saying that the scheduled flight into Sydney will land at approximately at 2:00AM Sydney time. I'm pretty sure that arrival is within the curfew? Someone tell me this is a mistake in the data?
