On the second day, the A380 was scheduled to leave YUL at 14:00, but it left at 13:00. Got there just in the nick of time. Below is the 380 taxing to take-off on 24R in contracts to an Air Transat 310 at the Transat hangar. The 310 is closer so its size is exagerated compared to the 380.

The A380 as it turns onto the 24R runway, in contrast with a Continental ERJ still on the taxiway. Note the size of the 380 engines relative to ERJ fuselage.

A little later, the ERJ positioned itself behind the 380.
