    Just to add to that John, they apparently also sent an A330-200 (VH-EBP) in what is now termed the 'fuel mules'

    Wellywood has had a 787 again today

    AKL is listing the divert ports which is cool.

    You might be better consulting FA in the current circumstances as their data is heavily based on flight plans. For instance there is a Hainan airlines flight 7932 from AKL to SZX currently over the Tasman and clearly heading for Oz to get fuel but FR24 shows the normal route while FA has the flight tagged as being to SYD then onto to SZX
    Indeed. That was my subtle hint that tracking the true diverts are better done.. well. Yep

    Track has them where they normally would be, but FA nandi station at low level

    Whooops

    Tuesday's update shows the problems are broadening, with stopovers in the Pacific depleting supplies there.
    Now they are running them to WLG

    So CHC/WLG is taking care of domestic top-ups. While Intls are now going to divert or stop enroute

    Seems next-leg scheduling still ends in some cancelled legs where whats left in tanks doesn't allow, or re-tasked to go to a different centre to top up

    Last nights EK was a 1-off with them using melbourne from tonight.

    By my calculations (thanks websites) it still comes up 200k short of the 2nd longest ex AKL. so we can't claim anything there.

    A Melbourne voz following it down for gas tonight

    Leak at Marsden Means the pipeline is offline. So may be diverting to CHC or wlg for gas n go.

    Sounds like it's currently just the non stop Dubai going to Christchurch. The others will fill up in Australia.

    Heard rumours Qantas might upscale planes to A330 so as to tanker fuel over.

    Just read something don't 10-15 days to repair. This is going to get very interesting.

    They're going to have to truck down all the 91/95 and diesel too!

    Also we now have a receiver somewhere in the Te Anau/Manapouri area (F-NZMO1).
