The only A380 I see passing the area of the crash around the time of the mishap is UAE37V (aka EK216) going opposite direction on UP574 at FL390. However they passed at 1407Z and according to the FR24 data TC-TRB was level at FL360 until something happened after 1430Z.

Also, I'm thinking that TC-TRB was probably on UT430, not UP574 from reports of the crash site location.
