Emirates A380 A6-EEX arrived into Melbourne this morning as EK404 from Dubai (depart Dubai 3rd January), however instead of going to a remote stand until this evening’s return EK405, following the earlier A380 technical issue at Melbourne the aircraft instead operated today’s delayed EK406 Melbourne – Auckland and return EK407 Auckland – Melbourne sectors. The aircraft then operated the delayed EK405 Melbourne – Dubai. As a result today’s EK407 Melbourne – Dubai sector was cancelled.
