In fact as soon as the concerned B777-300 landed at DXB, it was withdrawn from service. It was scheduled to operate the two daily Karachi flights. Instead Emirates ended up substituting two 777-200s on the flights (one a low density and the other a high density). It still didn't cover for the stranded pax, hence they laid on an extra flight later that evening operated by a A310-300 (high density).
According to the operations schedules, the aircraft will remain out of service for the rest of the week. Instead, they will substitute a combination of B777-200s and A330s on flights to Karachi and Jeddah. In fact to JED they are having to do extra flights to make up for the lost capacity as they don't have another sufficiently large acft.

I'm actually booked on this flight in October. Interested to hear that it's actually a 777-300 (Only flown on 200's so far).
If an engine change is required it must be a serious problem, are we sure this info is correct ?

I would look for an AN-124 to be landing in HYD
sometime this week. That is the only aircraft big
enough to carry a R-R Trent with the fan attached.
Any further news on the engine???? Must be pretty
serious as it sounds like its a fairly new aircraft.

Not bashing any of you RR- fans, but EK has had two incidents with the Trent 800 in a rather short period of time....
A spare will need to be flown in on a AN-124, as GARUDAROD already pointed out, if necessary.

Flight CZ3103, a Boeing 777 en route from Guangzhou to Beijing, was forced to return to Guangzhou for an emergency landing yesterday (05Jul) after the crew reported a problem with the nº2 engine.
The problem occurred about 20 minutes after takeoff and the crew dumped fuel before landing.

Anyone said that an AN-124 is required to carry the RR engine? What engine was MAS'? But they used a B744 Combi to transport an engine for replacement from KUL-PER but it costed AUD12m for one of those engines! I believe MAS uses PW engines rite?
