EK136 VCE-DXB Delayed Today June 15?

It seems EK136 from Venice to Dubai is delayed 10 hours until 1am tomorrow (June 16) morning. Any one know why? The inbound, EK 135, arrived already. Seems a big delay. I'm asking because I'm on the same flight tomorrow.

If it arrived on time, but is badly delayed, I suspect the aircraft went mechanical.

Yes, it did and was ultimately cancelled. It's still on the ground in VCE. Any one know the detailed reason?

we took the same flight at the beginning of the week en route to India, and on arrival in Dubai the plane was assigned to a park position far from the terminal with several trucks ready nearby, maybe it was the same airplane and was experiencing some sort of problems (to/from VCE a 340 is used)

I saw an EK A345 parked at a remote stand about 3 hours ago.
