EK A380 Emergency Diverts To CMB

Fri Jun 26, 2015 4:28 pm

Surprised to see that this has not been mentioned yet.
An Emirates Airbus A380 operating EK413 AKL-SYD-DXB of 25th June diverted to Colombo, CMB, early this morning. The aircraft had over 450 pax and 30 crew on board.

The reason is believed to be a cockpit smoke incident, and the aircraft is on ground as at now.

CMB does not have a fully A380 compliant runway as the runway is 45m in width instead of the 60m ideal for A380 ops. However there is sufficient ground clearance for a landing and A380s have landed in CMB in earlier occasions as well.

It has been discussed in the Australian Aviation thread.

There was also another EK A380 divert to CMB on the 15th of June, operating DXB-PER, medical diversion

That is strange. This incident certainly seems worthy of it's own thread. How are we supposed to assume that it would be being discussed in the Aus Av thread?

Most of the discussion has been in this thread so far although started later:
