DXB Delay

I’m currently in the DXB “Galleries” Lounge and have just heard the news that my flight, the BA0106, has been delayed by almost 6 hours and is now not leaving until the morning. The staff seem to have no idea why the aircraft has been delayed, although on ba.com the inbound flight from LHR has been severely delayed also. So, does anyone know why the inbound flight is delayed? I know aircraft management is a tough business, but with a 6 hour delay, one could have though that they would find a replacement aeroplane. Anyway, I have not taken the decision to go back to my hotel and have chosen to stay at the airport (choosing to go plane spotting and hopefully try to sneak some pictures of aircraft onto my camera without security noticing). Yet, this decision got me thinking, will BA give me miles as a compensation for the delayed flight?
