What I would like to know is how they manage this. I presume it's down to loads and aircraft down-time but are EK crew multi-jet rated, eg. can fly both Airbus AND Boeing? I've always wondered this.

Quoting bochora (Reply 1):

Yes they are...at least the flight attendants!!

They train them for Main-fleet (All Boeing types and all Airbus types except the A-380) and for 380-fleet (only A-380 airplanes)

They even have a special training for duty free selling on the A-380
