NATIONAL airline Air Pacific had to delay last night's Nadi to Los Angeles flight because of maintenance issues on one of the airline's B747 jumbo aircraft.

The flight was scheduled to leave Nadi International Airport at 10.50pm but would leave at 7am today.

"This flight (Nadi-LA) will be operated on the airline's leased Euro Atlantic B777-200ER aircraft," Air Pacific spokesman Shane Hussein said.

"The return Los Angeles-Nadi flight (FJ811) will operate with a 30-minute delay, departing Los Angeles at 10pm LA time, arriving in Nadi at 5:45am on Thursday November 29 (Fiji Time)."

Mr Hussein said yesterday that affected passengers were provided with meals and overnight accommodation.

"Air Pacific apologises to its customers for any inconvenience experienced as a result of this disruption, and thanks everyone for their understanding."

"The airline's Airport and Reservations staff will continue to keep affected customers updated on new flight times and any further flight delays once that information becomes available," Mr Hussein said.

Meanwhile Air Pacific yesterday operated a supplementary Nadi-Sydney-Nadi flight to cater for all affected passengers from Sunday's cancelled FJ910 service.
