As if I did not know.

I was on board for the very first inaugural flight to Sydney and all subsequent SQ A380 inaugurals following that one.

 

It is also the name of my Twitter friend who posted the link/picture.

They have diverted because of bad weather along with a Singapore Airlines A330.

It was QF002 from LHR operated by VH-OQE and the aircraft has just now arrived in SIN, over 3 hours late. Batam's runway (BTH) should have no problem accommodating this aircraft.

Ahh, thank God. QF - A 380 - diversion... I don't know why but I became a little bit nervous about what might be the reason for this diversion
