QANTAS A330-300 VH-QPA operating QF61 Brisbane – Tokyo Narita routed north west today as far as Brunei before turning north east for Tokyo Narita, thus taking over 11 hours for a flight which usually takes around 9 hours. This appears to be due to the aircraft having an issue making it non ETOPS compliant. As a result the flight arrived into Tokyo Narita just before night curfew and the return QF62 has been delayed overnight.
