Emirates Skywards - A380 Crew Cross-Training on 777
Jun 28, 12, 7:16 pm
A lot of A380 crew are cross-training at present on the 777, to help with ever increasing workload of the main-fleet crew, due to the wing-crack issue of the A380's. Many A380 crews have been idle while the whale-jets sit grounded awaiting inspection and repair...

When you say 'crews' do you mean flight deck or cabin crews?
I don't think it would be a worthy option if it was for flight deck crews. Unless they had previous endorsements on B777 aircraft. I know for a fact a lot a A380 crews trained up on the A330/A340 type aircraft and then when the time came (seniority level) were transferred onto the A380 or even the B777.
Emirates are currently operating 20/21 Airbus A380s, with A6-EDK still out of service.

The rumor is there is going to be a major shakedown in September with A380 repairs...
