But over the last couple of days, there has been a couple of other issues with flights into CQ Airports.
On Saturday 11 October, Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-YIV departed Brisbane as VOZ1117 for the Proserpine / Whitsunday Coast Airport. It also had maintenance issues and also returned to Brisbane. VH-YIV then departed Brisbane - again as VOZ1117 for Proserpine - nearly two-hours later.
Finally, Jetstar Airways Airbus A320 VH-VFF flew into Hamilton Island from Melbourne (Tullamarine) as JST860 on Monday 13 October. It seemingly then broke down and did not depart.
Instead, fellow Jetstar A320 VH-VGA positioned from Cairns into Hamo as JST7983 and then later departed to Melbourne as the delayed JST863.
VH-VFF ended up departing Hamilton Island for Cairns on Tuesday 14 October as JST7984. It then departed Cairns for Perth later in the day, resuming normal Jetstar services.
