EK241 nnksztse
Dubai – Toronto was operated today by A380 A6-EDR, this aircraft is in 38M configuration without crew rest areas. The use of such aircraft on this route is permitted so long as sufficient passenger seats are available for use as crew rest seats. It appears that today insufficient seats were available as the flight operated via Manchester where a crew change took place. The return EK242 was also originally scheduled to stop in Manchester but in the end operated direct to Dubai, suggesting there were sufficient cancellations or no shows to make enough passenger seats available to crew.
