When I drove by the new concourse last week, at least two A380 bridges were already built/installed

Why are they building new terminals at DXB when DWC is going to take over as Dubai's main airport?

Air density decreases with altitude. At high elevation airports, an airplane requires more runway to take off. Its rate of climb will be less, its approach will be faster, because the true air speed [TAS] will be faster than the indicated air speed [IAS] and the landing roll will be longer.

Air density also decreases with temperature. Warm air is less dense than cold air because there are fewer air molecules in a given volume of warm air than in the same volume of cooler air. As a result, on a hot day, an airplane will require more runway to take off, will have a poor rate of climb and a faster approach and will experience a longer landing roll.

And also to answer your question regarding the A380s... A380s utilize 20% less runway to takeoff than a B747...

Yes its EK248. Maybe some a/c created snag as there were many empty gates in the direction where buses are going.
