Delay problems of AY69 / AY99 HEL-HKG
 
Does anyone know what is causing the delays to AY69? Both LQB (yesterday) and LQC (today) have had 4 hr departure delays. At first I thought it may have been a tech issue with LQB, but LQA is now showing the same delay.

LQB on AY70 today is currently showing a 22 minute delay to take off.

According to KVS, it was tech issue.

I dont know about Your sources but where is it said LQC will be delayed 4 hrs? LQA ?

And AY70 not showing any delay at HKG, Just taxiing to departure point runway 07R at time 0039 local.

I was in HKG waiting for AY70 and saw that LQB had been delayed inbound to HKG, and at the time, flightradar was showing that LQC was also delayed....

LQB got me to HEL 3 minutes early and now flightradar is showing that LQC is on a perfectly normal itinerary. So what happened there I have no idea... it could have been bad info on flightradar or too much Tsingtao. ;)

Anyway I will be sending AY note to say how good AY70 just was... crew fantastic, seat very comfy, I slept for 7 hrs straight - what a joy.

Yeah a mate of mine is on that flight, he said they werenít allowed to disembark when they returned because the terminal was closed.

Hopefully thatís been sorted now, but thereís no update yet as to what the issue with the plane was.

I friend of mine onboard had heard something about a landing gear issue.

OH-LGG Sep 25, 17 12:48 am

Sixty-niner got cancelled then.

Any words from HEL how they re-routed ?

AY73 got to do a much better sightseeing tour the other day. Went halfway to Japan and then diverted to HEL. How many AY+ points do you earn for HEL-Russia without landing?

And last night it was sixty-niner OH-LWH sightseeing to Syktyvkar area, Russia but turned and back to HEL. And finally cancelled.
Total flight time was apprx 3h 10min.

Not 69 related but 82 was badly delayed last night, departed from here Singapore 9hrs late this morning.

I am on 82 tonight and it is now delayed to 04.10 in the morning. AY just called me and offered to re-route via Doha with Qatar (going to ARN) but obviously in Y so I rather keep the J upgrade via HEL...plus I have a friend on the same flight in coach.

The reason for these 82 delays is crew member sickness, they told.

Amyway, really good proactive service by AY, very much appreciated 👍

If this is "protocol" then they've really upped the ante. Proactively offering re-route on other airlines is a far cry from the old SOP where all handling was left to a tired employee at transfer desk, unwilling to do anything at 11pm when pax arrived HEL on their connections.
