Does anyone know whats going on with the A380? I was on my way to an interview this morning around the airport and saw the A380 parked near the end of 24R. Was it a huge mechanical delay? It should have left for Dubai last night.

Quoting lnglive1011yyz (Reply 8): What's the word on the repairs? Was there much damage done to the wing?
Not sure. She's currently parked over at the Echo gates behind the 193 extension, but I haven't had time to get out there to get a look. I'll try on Friday when I'm back in (if she's still there) and see what I can see.
Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

So what would EK do for all the pax? If it's a full load they're going to be hard pressed to find alternate flights to everyone. I assume most of the traffic would be connecting to India/Africa so that would be a nightmare for EK. Would they rather send a replacement aircraft all the way from DXB (if they even have a spare)?

Quoting SU184 (Reply 2): Why jump to aircraft problems everytime an A380 delays/diverts !!!
Take it easy....nothing to do with the A380....when one sees a plane stuck at an airport when it shouldn't be there at all, first thing that comes to mind is technical problems with the plane, not an out of control catering truck...

Thanks for the info guys.
Anyone at Pearson now, the regular A380 scheduled flight from Dubai has just landed at Pearson. Now we have 2 A380's at the airport. Hopefully someone can take some shots of these two Emirates birds at once in YYZ. Hopefully it will be back in service very soon.

The LSG Skychefs Toronto office has the same address (or location) as CLS catering (on Convair Dr). I know I've seen CLS trucks that have both the CLS and LSG logos. What is the reason for this? Two seperate companies operating out of the same building with shared vehicles?
JohnJ, how was that shot taken? Possibly from the AMU (apron management unit) I'm guessing.
