Monday 11 December 2017 - Seeing double Emirates Airbus A380s as 4 visit after Sundays snowfall

Emirates Airbus A380-861 A6-EOY operated their lunchtime flight from Dubai landing as
A380-842 A6-EUY which had diverted to Manchester the previous day was still boarding

As no stand was available A380 A6-EOY then had to hold on Taxiway Alpha while a
number of following arrivals landed and then backtracked down Runway 33 to pass it

Emirates Airbus A380-842 A6-EUY was soon on its way albeit nearly 24 hours late....

.... departing to Dubai and causing its own snowstorm as it lifted off Runway 33

As a result of Sunday's diversions both of which went to Manchester and then returned
today/Monday a total of 4 Emirates Airbus A380s operated through Birmingham -
1030/1230 EK39D/8040 388 from Manchester/to Dubai A6-EUY
- return of flight diverted on Sunday - Emirates
