Default Air Niugini

Does anyone know what is wrong with 763 P2-PXW, It has been in Guangzhou, China since 13 February, getting close to 2 months now. It presumably is there for maintenance but this long?? As a result PXV is being "flogged" running almost 24 hours a day for weeks now. It's only nights off appear to be Friday in SYD and Sunday in POM, but then last Sunday it did POM/MNL/POM overnight so that was a sixth overnighter.

PXW is under heavy maintence which apparently has been delayed, and PXV is now offline needing an engine change.

HAECO are refusing to change engines apparently owing to "commercial" issues.
