Hey,

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.

Regards

Because it's a large noticable aircraft.

I saw it this morning as well and was wondering, just didnt post about it.

Veddy interesting. I saw the A380 this morning and it didn't click that it shouldn't have been at YYZ at that time. Thanks for the info.

Ouch.

What's the word on the repairs? Was there much damage done to the wing?

Does anyone have extensive knowledge of the lift-trucks that do the catering? Do they have a locking-pin that locks in place when extended?

Wing damage to an A380, again ! Such a shame.

And I would also think that a pin should be there. Was nobody injured ? If that happens just when someone is between the truck and the plane...

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.

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)?

So that's why they cancelled my flight to HKG on the 21st! The damage must be extensive enough to take 2 weeks (or more) to repair.

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.

Hmm. Not much in the way of visible damage in that shot. Hopefully it's not so bad after all.

AC contracts out their in-flight catering to Cara (recently bought by GateGroup).

In this case, I believe its LSG SkyChefs that caters EK.

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.

CLS Catering is a tie up between LSG & Cathay, hence the two logos & one building.
