Another EK A380 Tech At LHR

A6-EDC is still at LHR after going tech yesterday (2nd Feb). This is the 2nd EK A380 to suffer a lengthy tech problem at LHR in a week, after A6-EDD had the engine problem a few days ago, necessitating a 3 engine ferry flight back to DXB.

Anyone got any info as to what is wrong with DC ?. I saw it several times today, with Emirates engineering vehicles parked outside it. Was going to go over for a nosey onboard, but didn't get around to it in the end.

Just wondered if this is engine related too, if it is specific to the GP7200's as I don't recall SQ having any major delays with their RR powered a/c.

Somewhat related and out of curiosity, who is the MX provider for EK at LHR? SQ uses BA Engineering.


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Hair clog in the shower?

I know SQ had Airbus kid glove engineering assistance, at least at the beginning of their service - does anyone know if EK got the same and, if so, are they no longer doing the "special care"?
