it appears to either be starting or ending an engine change to the #4 engine. Looking at the JLG's on both sides of the engine and the crane for the Nose cowl , As a mechanic?? That's my best Guess..
Do they even Have a hangar at JFK that will Fit an A380?? I haven't been on the Ground at JFK in over 30 Years but when I was thee last I thought Hangar 19 was large enough.
I KNOW the United Hangars couldn't so the old TWA and Pan-AM hangars were the best bet.
That's Got to be a blow to their engine Reliability program. But then again ? Maybe not. The FAA tracks EVERY in flt shutdown or internal failure against ETOPS engine reliability even on a 4 engine airplane. As they're Not US Registered that might not be the case where they come from.

And they are doing great job not to leak any information.
I just love Emirates' PR. They are doing such great job to protect the airlines' reputation.
Any small information regarding safety and maintenance would always attract attentions.
The less you are exposed, the little people talk about.
