So I work ramp at T-5 JFK and I'm waiting for my flight and all of a sudden I see Emirates A380 take off. It was around 0730 I believe. Anyway, I was wondering why at that time and day it was taking off and one of my co workers said that he worked the night before and heard it got stuck. Now he just said stuck and I couldn't find out what he meant because of course my flight came in. So what happened if anything did happen?

BTW, that plane is amazing to watch taking off. It was my first time catching it. Too bad it was snowing.

Thanks in advance.

Hopefully that helps in determining the length of the delay.

Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Singapore Air is correct. EK202 (scheduled at 23.00 on 1 March) left at 05.06am this morning (2nd March). Just over 6 hours late. Weather. Snow.

EK 202 for 2nd March left at 23.28 but this appears to be a 777 substituting for the A380.

EK 204 is the daily 777 flight.

And EK 204 on the 3rd March is now departing at 19.40pm rather than 10.40am - which is frustrating as that is my plane - and that appears to be late due to crew rest reuqirements after a late arrival today (via a stop in Boston).

Weather in New York is bitterly cold.

From my sources at JFK it seems that a Korean Air A/C either taking off or landing somehow came off the runway when EK202-01MAR was next for take off. Since it took them forever to get Korean out of the way the A/C came back for a 2nd de-icing and I can't imagine how long it would take to de-ice an A380 once never mind twice!

There was been terrible weather at JFK with many diversions to airports all over the north east. The JFK IAT looked like a ghost town yesterday afternoon. There were only a handful of aircrafts parked at gates.
