    That’s tough….a plane load of passengers on EC261 compensation. Maybe the problem was LGW only having the one A380 gate.

    Still better than subcontracting to those jokers at Wamos Air. You need to be absolutely desperate to use an operator like that.

    The Problem was actually at JFK. At around the the scheduled times, an Air France A380, Korean A380 and a B747-8 also needed the docking positions. It remains to be seen if there’ll be some schedule changes in the coming days or else it’ll chaos all along.

    For the past couple of days the A380 flights have indeed been retimed.

    Today, for example, flight DY 7015 is displayed on the departures board as leaving at 2105hrs.

    Seemingly the inbound A380 flight DY 7016 was also retimed ex-JFK. It arrived into LGW this afternoon at around 14.30hrs.

    Interesting piece in Lesechos.fr about Hi-Fly’s A380.

    According to a “charter specialist” Norwegian will be paying Euros 45,000 per hour to lease the A380 including insurance and crew.

    Would not Norwegian operate that aircraft to Brazil?
