You thought you had trouble finding parking at the mall. Imagine if you were trying to park the world’s biggest aircraft.
Emirates’ Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger plane, recently reportedly had trouble finding parking at YYZ due to some miscommunication. The A380, which can carry more than 800 passengers, can only land at certain airports due to its size, including YYZ.
However, due to a large congestion of aircraft, Emirates’ Airbus A380 was directed to the wrong gate, C34. Until the problem was resolved, the pilot refused to move until YYZ officials could provide them with answers.
It turns out, the pilots were simply not told the full gate name of “C34A,” which could fit the large aircraft.
