Air Pacific flights disrupted

International carrier Air Pacific has made several changes to its flights because of maintenance issues relating to one of its aircraft.

In a statement, the airline said it’s Flight 911 (Sydney – Nadi) was cancelled on Sunday night due to maintenance issues on one of its B747 jumbo aircraft.

Akosita Talei has the details.

"Air Pacific says its engineers in Sydney are still working on returning the aircraft to service and all affected passengers in Sydney have been provided with meals and accommodation.

They will travel to Nadi on supplementary services that Air Pacific will operate to from Sydney today.

As a result of Sunday’s B747 maintenance issue, most of Air Pacific’s passengers on the continuation Flight 810 from Nadi to Los Angeles, were delayed by 10 hours when they travelled to the United States on the airline’s leased Euro Atlantic B777-200ER aircraft or were flown to Los Angeles via Air Pacific’s Honolulu flight.

The airline says as a result of the new flight times, return Flight 811 from Los Angeles to Nadi today will experience a 4-hour delay.

Air Pacific has apologised to its customers for any inconvenience experienced as a result of this disruption, and thanked everyone for their understanding.

The airline says it’s Airport and Reservations staff will continue to keep affected customers updated on new flight times and any further flight delays once that information becomes available."
