A380 Delays and route rumours

News on the net indicates that EK is in talks with Airbus over the deferral of some A380 aircraft. Furthermore, production problems at Airbus will lead to delay - of a few months - in the delivery of the A380's this year.
Any truth to the rumour about the A380 being withdrawn from the JFK sector?

A 380 Delays!

With 17 aircraft deliveries this year including the 777 freighter ..We might delay the delivery of the A380 since the only new ROUTE this year will be DURBAN (as of now!!!) .

Also the fact that ICN will be served sometime in the near future by the 380..they will finally find maximum utilisation for the 380. As for the 380 being off the JFK route that seems highly probable because the 777 has better payload on ULR missions than the 380.

However, keep in mind that the Magazine that covered this story, Der Speigel , is an anti-airbus magazine. If you read any of their articles you would find a lot of Airbus bashing. It might be true that EK sent a 42 page slideshow to Airbus with regards to the 380 but you have to keep in mind that EK is their Biggest A380 customer and just like the way Pan Am worked with Boeing on the early problems with regards to the 747 , EK is doing the same ! So in my opinion we MIGHT DELAY but we will definately not CANCEL the 380 !

It seems come the 01 June 2009 the following changes will take place with regards to US/Canada operations ....

EK201 DXB-JFK will return to 777-300

EK241 DXB-YYZ will have a capacity upgrade to A380

Drug bust in JNB

According to reports in South Africa, 500kg of ephedrine was found in the cargo hold of EK 761 on Tuesday. How did this consignment get past security in DXB?!!

If you check the lastest rumour buster posted on the 19th! The change in roster publication was somthing to do with system problems and was only meant to be for one month! So I guess the problems are now corrected and we have returned to normal roster publication.....

A345 Tail Strike in MEL

Happy to hear that all pax and crew are safe after the tail strike incident in MEL. Apparently smoke filled the cabin while the aircraft was dumping fuel. Thankfully. this serious situation did not claim any lives.

Sheesh...this a bad week for the airline. First the tail strike in MEL and now a bomb threat on board EK 011. Thankfully, everyone disembarked safely.

So, how come no one here has mentioned that the person responsible for the bomb hoax on board on board the EK flight to LGW was an Australian member of the cabin crew.

What a silly boy.....I wonder what possesed him to want to do that?
EK stress-out mental break down or Matty just wanted to spend more time with his bf? Anyone who had flown with Matt knew he had a bit of an "L" on his forehead.

Usual EK info block out here but check out the oz news papers.

The guy has been arrested, not yet convicted. It doesn't look good, but maybe you could pause for a second before turning on your fellow crew like that.

Actually an arrest is not indicative of definitive guilt. There is the little matter of a trial and verdict first.
