LH A380 D-AIMI Stuck At SFO For Days

Sun Dec 23, 2012 6:28 pm

An LH A380 will finally return to FRA tonight as DLH9877. It has been stuck at SFO since Thursday. Does anyone know why?

I had heard on flyertalk that it had encountered severe turbulence as LH 454 and needed a check out. LH 455 was cancelled on the 20th as a result.

Word among the LH A380 crews is that the A380 suffers from a lot of unrelated tech issues right now. Don't know whether that relates to D-AIMI or not, or how reliable their assessment is.
