Thanks for the explanation.

I assume it's the A380 that previously did the MEL/AKL return. We have one parked in Brisbane all day now too.

I noticed the EK A380 parked there last week. It does seem like a curious place to park, but there are extra large paved areas on the corners of taxiway B (near north end of runway 16/34) and taxiway K (south end of 16/34). These may have been designed to allow an aircraft on the taxiway to do a 180-degree turn and backtrack, perhaps if the runway were to be blocked. In the early days of the JQ Boeing 787s I noticed one of them was also parked at the north end of the field for long periods.

It’s a great view of an A380 if you are driving past that’s for sure.
