I heared it also. Originally they wanted to land in BUD, but at FL100 they decided to go to VIE.

guys ,

any one have news on the EK40 on the 14th of October ? im due to fly in 12 hrs to DXB from BHX on EK40 on the 14th , and im worried due to acft shortage , i might get an old A330 or an old B772 ?
any ideas of they have a spare retrofitted B772 with ICE ? or any clarfications on what knock on effect this might have ??


i have specifaclly paid extra to get on EK40 purely to get ICE ....
