Anyone know what happened?
Seems like it was 3/4 the way to NAN from SYD when it turned back....

Mechanical issue forces Fiji Airways' Nadi-Sydney flight cancellation

NATIONAL airline Fiji Airways was forced to cancel flight FJ910 from Sydney to the Nadi International Airport last night.

In a statement, the airline reported that the cancellation was due to a mechanical issue with the aircrafts weather radar system.

The airline stated all affected guests were accommodated in Sydney last night before they were expected to depart Australia at 6am today.

The flight was scheduled to arrive at 11.25am.

The airline apologised to all affected guests and their families for inconvenience caused by the disruption.

Thank you. Yes, I see that now. My post and greencoconut's was posted at the same time.


Curious though, the statement said the flight was cancelled, however flightaware shows that it turned back. Was it enroute and then turned back as flightaware shows? If so, is this 2 separate events?

Well if it didn't arrive then technically it was cancelled

concur, but that doesn't sound like what the statement from Fiji is saying.

From what I can deduce....

Monday's flight returned to Sydney.
Tuesday's flight was cancelled.
