I'm on DL flight 4478, ORD-SLC, delayed 5hrs due to a broken windscreen from FOD blown by an A-380 according to our pilot. Apparently this happened last night during taxi into the gate. Has anyone heard about this? What airline flys an A-380 to ORD?

ORD cannot handle the A380 as of right now due to the wingspan and size. The 747-8 is the largest I have seen out there and even that has issues when taxiing. The A380 has been to ORD before it entered into service when LH flew it from JFK. It must have been another widebody aircraft that did that.
