Emirates Dubai to Toronto flight delayed

May 4 - Emirates Airlines’ flight A380 from Dubai to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport on Monday was delayed because of some technical issues. The flight has been rescheduled for today.  “Emirates flight EK241 operated by an A380, scheduled to depart Dubai to Toronto on May 3 at 09:55 hours was delayed due to a minor technical fault prior to departure,” said an Emirates spokesperson.“Passengers, where necessary, have been accommodated at a hotel following the delay and are re-booked to travel on Emirates flight EK241 on May 4.”
Meanwhile, passengers said they were sitting in the aircraft for more than four hours before the captain asked them to get off the plane. Emirates has yet to clarify what the fault actually was. Emirates did not clarify the nature of the technical fault. However, a source said this was the first time that an Emirates A380 flight faced such a glitch. “They said the quality of air conditioning was not fine and they did not want any problems midway,” said one passenger.
