EK241 DXB-YYZ Major Delay Jan 23?

Wed Jan 23, 2013 11:30 am

Was wondering if anyone had an update as to why EK241 is over 4hrs delayed today... Operated by A6-EDB?
I know there was fog early this morning but shouldn't have impacted it this much. Further just noticed she was boarded via hard stand and has returned to the stand.

I have an elderly relative on the flight and any info on the cause for the delay would be most appreciated.

I don't know but yesterday (22nd) EK003 DXB-LHR was downgraded from an A380 to a nasty, cramped 777-300ER. I know, 'çause I was on it.  

So at least one A380 is having trouble.

I presume that this was due to bad weather. Almost all flights out of DXB this morning (0500-0800 range) seem to have left with a delay. And this is for all operators.
