There was the twit posted by a380fanclub..... though there is ETD9013 out of XFW, assumed to be MSN191 but I haven't found any evidence 100%, could it be an A32x?.... (though skyliner doesn't list any A32x for Etihad delivered today....)
It is the correct frame if you check the compare the hex codes of it and the one here
I saw a380fanclub posting which referring to the tweet from EA but not sure if we consider that as official handover. Usually I wait for Airbus updated Order and Delivery sheet and then I update the "Delivered field". We can keep it and then compare it with the sheet when it is updated at the beginning of Nov.
I didn't mean that philidor. I just meant maybe the official handover was a day before the EA tweet but the tweet only came the next day. Anyway, it is not a big deal, we will know when Airbus O&D is updated in Nov.
So Etihad's reliability record has gone out of the window. A380 APE had a tech issue at Heathrow on May 5, resulting in cancellation of EY12. APA had a delayed flight from Sydney on May 4, but EYsource is not sure if it was technical.

Not again: exactely a week after her tech issue at Heathrow APE hit trouble again on May 12. On the same 9.35 am flight EY12, which was cancelled. Etihad confirmed a tech issue to me and said pax were rebooked to other flights. Surprisingly, EY12 unexpectedly departed at 8.17 pm.
An Emirates pilot said to me on Twitter he saw APE land with all gear doors fully open, indicating also those were open that should have been closed during landing.
