On VA23 from Melbourne to Los Angeles next week, I notice that over the past couple of weeks one of the scheduled services each week has been cancelled (yesterday, 2nd Sept etc.)

Anyone know why? Should I expect another next week?

I think they have a 777 out of action again. Something to do with fuel tank repairs again maybe? I am sure someone who follows these things a lot more than I do can advise

VH-VPF is on the way back from Singapore now. It's been there since 3rd September.

Probably just some required heavy maintenance at VA's part owner SIA facilities. Good to get it done before peak season hits.
