I flew into JFK on CX 888 the morning of the 15th, and noticed that an EK A380 was still there, meaning it hadn't departed for Dubai the night before. I checked the status, and due to mechanical reasons, it was delayed until 1:30am on the 16th. A few hours later, they cancelled it.
Anyone have any info on what was wrong with the aircraft? Also, what do they do with the extra plane? Does it fly back to DXB empty with the crew that were supposed to fly it back, or what?
Any help is appreciated!
