International carrier Air Pacific continues to face flight disruptions as a result of its 747 jumbo jet facing mechanical problems in Sydney.
Due to the unavailability of the 747 aircraft, their flights to Los Angeles faced delays of about 10 hours on Sunday and passengers will face an eight hour delay for the scheduled flight tonight.
Air Pacific says engineers in Sydney are still working on returning the aircraft to service.
The airline sent an additional flight to Sydney today to cater for passengers who were affected on Sunday. This flight was also delayed by a few hours.
Air Pacific has two 747 aircraft, one is currently in Singapore for a routine maintenance check and the second one has developed problems in Sydney.
The airline is advising passengers that tonight’s LA flight which was to depart at 10.50pm tonight will now leave at 7am tomorrow.
