Sounds like the "follow me" truck went down the wrong taxiway. Can't fault the plane for that, maybe the crew if they knew what taxiways the 380 can or cant take at LAX.

Captain has command. He does not have to follow the "follow me". That is the problem these days...flight crews do as suggested. Captain has the call unless directed by the tower to expedite a movement for saftey reasons.

It's an obese monstrosity. Never liked the A380, either to look at nor travel on.
