    The above implies that FR24 automatically blocks all corporate jets and unblocks them for a fee.

    1. I may be wrong but I don't think FR24 automatically blocks all corporate jets (or other, civil registered types).
    2. There is a fee to block an aircraft using the "Express 24hr service" (which supports my above understanding). Or free for the slower service.
    3. Unblocking a blocked aircraft for the owner/operator's FR24 Business account is free. Additional aircraft incur a fee.

    I may be reading this incorrectly but I don't thinks FR24 automatically blocks civil registered aircraft.

    So your corporate jet is blocked automatically by type then you can pay for having it unblocked.
    No wonder they do not want to discuss it. All the flight data provided for free by feeders and the
    data base they use updated also by volunteers. Hmmmmm

    Not surprised.

    On a similar theme, you don't see a lot of Dassault Falcons flying around Oz but the other day I spied one flying from Ayres Rock to Brisbane although initially that was an educated guess because it was just a generic callsign and a trail on FR24. Every other flight tracker though had full particulars of the both the aircraft and the flight and it does not appear that the operator of the aircraft has in any way requested blocking.

    Amazing - blocked just because it is a corporate jet and yet now I notice that if you happen to own one that is blocked, FR24 will be pleased to unblock it for access on your business subscription - for a fee!

    First one of these Orion replacements I've seen. In the screen shot it's going from from Edinburgh SA to Amberley Qld. No doubt this aircraft will be blocked pretty soon, probably not by the RAAF but by FR24.

    I don't consult FR24 stats much but I've not found them to be particularly reliable. Both of those are excellent feeders in very useful locations and curiously both are in the Northern Territory. F-YPTN2 does not seem to be active as much as F-YDVR1 but it's hard to tell with the way aircraft are often assigned to highly improbable feeders.

    They've even had to add more gates at akl to stop double stacking with all the SQs in too around same time.

    It would be hard to roll our leg back to a 330 with them leaving service. Guess we could see the ge90s back if our leg comes short too

    No more Emirates SYD-AKL

    Reports today that Emirates EK418/419 SYD - AKL will cease after 13th July to be replaced by a an additional Qantas A330 codeshare. These are interesting flights for radarspotters because the route is Dubai - Bangkok - Sydney - Auckland and different aircraft generally operate the inbound and outbound legs. The plane that operates EK418 from Sydney becomes EK435 back to Dubai via Brisbane while the one that arrived from Brisbane as EK434 leaves for Dubai via Sydney and Bangkok as EK419.

    There was a theory around that Emirates only started the SYD - AKL service because it was cheaper to fly to NZ, picking up a bit of revenue on the way, than park all day at Sydney airport making nothing! Believe it if you like but there will certainly be a bit more parking space at Auckland soon. With the direct DBX - AKL flight now in place I wonder how much more life is left in the MEL - AKL and/or BNE - AKL daily A380s

    MAS128

    Link below to the very short flight around Melbourne last night by MAS128 after some loony claimed - falsely - to have brought a bomb on board.

    Check out earth.nulschool.net and chose 90hpa for that altitude

    Apparently there's currently an upper level trough over Queensland extending out and pushing across and into the Tasman. This might make short work of these 'Loons' up there. They'll likely soon be out over the Pacific and offering high speed internet connection to schools of fish.

    Wonder how long they've been up and from whence they came? They're all scooting along at a fair clip- averaging about 35-40kts at 60-62,000ft. Interesting to watch.

    This explanation of their purpose is likely found elsewhere but in case it can't be easily located and anyone is wondering I'll also post it here;
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Loon

    As well as the group over northern Queensland there's also one southwest of Darwin and two on roughly either border (west and east) of South Australia.
