At the end of our layover, me and the other crew on EK 002 were being transported to the airport on the 10th of July when we noticed that an Air France A380 was parked at one of the gates. was that a diversion or was it sent there for a regular flight or was it a special event?

Crew training flights every weekend from early June until late August. The subject has tons of postings in the forums on this site and has been widely known about in aviation circles for a couple of months now.. Surprised you haven't heard about it before now.
