Ms. 747-444 got a Y+ - J upgrade on JNB-SYD, 18/07, 6hr delay due to 5th engine ferry

QF 64 on the 16th of July had engine problems and returned to JNB.

On the 18th QF 63 ferried a 5th engine and landed up routing SYD-PER-JNB with a new engine for the stricken flight that returned to JNB.

Ms. 747-444 was meant to be on the return flight that ferried the 5th engine. The flight was delayed 6 hours due to the PER routing and also as they had to remove the 5th engine.

When she got to check in they informed her she had been upgraded from Y+ to J, complimentary.

She is now on route, which means she arrives into MEL at 11:30 or so instead of 5:30.
