It looks as though ZNB cruised at 26,000ft which was well below optimal level and did an orbit about 180 miles from MEL. Speed looked to be normal for the flight at around 500kts.

They planned to fly route T25 which flies east of ASP but flew well into WA for a lot of the flight. Maybe the weather was still an issue, particularly when flying at a lower altitude to avoid any further lightning.

It would have been dispatched with a permissible unserviceability and FL260 would be a restriction on that. The track would suggest they needed to remain clear of any icing conditions.

Any word when EBB & EBD will re-enter service given both Domestic & International capacities are returning as I'm guessing these aircraft will be needed shortly?

The mechanics in Melbourne did a quick job, as ZNB was on its way to London via Darwin within 24 hours. As I write, due at LHR in 3 hours.

Seems we have another QF9 delayed departure from Darwin - currently showing as 12 hours on the Qantas Flight Status webpage [ZNK being the aircraft].
The last two delays (7th & 13th) were updated to cancellations by following morning.

While ZNK and ZND were swapped in London, so that ZND operated a normal timetable QF10 back to Melbourne, ZNK then operated a delayed QF2 to Sydney.

Now ZNA operating QF1 has been delayed in Darwin - 15 hours on the Qantas Flight Status webpage.

It needed a service but the main reason for the altitude and route was fuel burn, she was filled for the LHR leg
