Yes, itís the shortage of A380 gates for LH & EK, they will pay for gates, unlike tightass TG....

I am sure EK is willing to pay more, yes indeed - but to be fair, a previous poster did mention that his LH flights left from bus gates the past two times, so guess LH is no less tight-... than TG

I know LH want to pay for the A380 gates, they are given low priority by AOT because itís only a seasonal A380 service.
