Fantastic News. Will they try to keep the plane on the South Side of the Airfield to limit it's ground movement to/from the terminal?
Whatever

Which gate or gates in Terminal 5 have been reconfigured to handle the A380? One of the M gates has to have a jet bridge that can reach the A380's upper deck.

I predict this may turn out to be more than just a one-off. The first one is likely to test the new gate and handling at the airport. If it goes well I think we'll see Emirates make the A380 permanent, at least during the summer.

Having seen the first A-380 visit to ORD 3/20/07, this is welcome news. Hard to believe more than nine years would pass before the second visit!

I think M10/11 is going to be A380 ready.

It will be. The last I saw they were hanging jet bridges for it so it's not far from being complete.

I'm excited to see my home away from home from LAX to DXB and DXB to MEL! I might have to try and sneak some pics when it comes in! :-P

Surprised EK isn't going more than 1 flight a day to ORD by now.
