  1. Matt, do you see which frames are parked on outside positions of EMC?

  2. I think ANA line 22 was outside on Thursday

  3. Thanks. Slow times for EMC now, LN22 should be moved inside next, with one of 8 stored on the RWY11-29 frames moved to EMC after roll out of ZB197 ANA 787-9

  4. Can you tell me which airline tail is behind the emirates tail

  5. I don't see an Emirates in any of those pictures.

  6. I think he meant the UAE (United Arab Emirates)in picture 1. I believe its Air India that is parked perpendicular to the ANA in the background.
