QANTAS A380 VH-OQF operating QF12 Los Angeles – Sydney (depart Los Angeles 15th January) diverted to Brisbane for fuel this morning having met stronger than expected headwinds over the Pacific. The aircraft then encountered a technical issue meaning crew timed out before they could depart for Sydney. Passengers were transferred to an additional A330-200 Brisbane – Syney sector. A new crew flew VH-OQF Brisbane – Sydney empty during the afternoon.
