EY11/12 Equipment Swap?

I was booked to fly on EY's A380 for travel in about 2 weeks time. Seems like there is an equipment swap from A380 to 77W for my flight in the past 48 hours. How common is it for them to swap it back to the 380?

Unlikely. They aren't CX.

I would contact them and ask to change dates.

The change from 380 to 77W literally changed within the past 48 hours though.

Is there a chance it could get changed further, to an A332 or something?

it could be a maintainence issue or something simialr, or a schedule tweek. Its good you were able to check this, if the timing of your flight is flexible I would change it if you can. its not that uncommon with a relatively new aircraft so definitely sensible to monitor

So what? It's unlikely with so few A388s it will be changed back.

I am somewhat flexible, but O space is not

Just two days ago, the EY 11 on the day before mine was 346, now it's 380. Now mine is 77W instead of 380. Hence I asked if it's going to change further.

Very unlikely to be changed to an A332 since that is only a 2-class aircraft.

Dear Guest,

The aircraft may be changed due to the operational reason such as normal maintenance.

You can check your flight details through 'Manage my Booking' on the website.

Thank you. *JS
