Quoting tugger (Reply 1): Ummm, unless I'm missing something, according to the times you posted there won't be two on the ground at the same time. EK002 is departing 5 minutes before EK029 arrives.
You are missing something. That's not the scheduled airborne time. That's the scheduled push back from gate time. Once EK029 arrives on time (or early) there will be two EK A380's on the ground. Considering that gate 307 is closed for installation of a third airbridge, my guess is that should there be a delay to EK002 departing on time, then EK029 will ground hold for the same gate - either 301, 3 or 5. If it was Friday that this happened then you would have 2 EK 380s and one QF 380.

Quoting babybus (Reply 4): I've noticed the last few times I passed LHR that QF weren't using their A380's just their old 744's. Is that true or just my bad luck?
Just your bad luck. There are the occasional cancellations due to "operational reasons". I can assure you that there is at least one QF 380 daily (well yesterday there were two, OQA/OQC). Though having said that, tomorrow's 31/32 (departing SYD/SIN today) is cancelled....

Ooops! Yep, silly me and I should know better.
