Emirates - Delays Sydney/Auckland

My partner is en route from London to Auckland.

She took an Emirates flight (EK 0412) because it is supposed to be a reputable airline and because she was able to layover in Dubai for an extra £30.00 and so avoid doing the flight non-stop.

Prior to leaving Dubai, she was told that the onward flight from Sydney to Auckland, would be delayed 5 hours. When she arrived in Sydney, she was given a boarding pass for the flight, I presume a code-share. She boarded this flight, sat on board for two hours and then was told the flight hand been cancelled and had to disembark.

She is now onboard another flight and hopefully this is going to take-off

What is going on with Emirates and the Sydney-Auckland route?
