eTravelBlackboard: A380 is 100 percent safe: Qantas
Turism&Travel Qantas has reassured travellers that the A380 is still 100 percent safe to fly despite minor cracking in the aircraft’s wing rib brackets.

According to the airline, the crackings are located in brackets connecting the wing rib to the skin of the aircraft and of the 4,000 brackets built into the A380 the airline located cracks in fewer than 10 locations. Since, the airline has repaired the damages and has returned all three aircraft to service with Airbus confirming that the cracks pose “no risk whatsoever to the safety of A380 operations”. “Qantas has not been ‘forced to ground’ aircraft – like every other A380 operator, we are complying fully with a regulatory requirement,” Qantas group executive Olivia Wirth said.     “No more than one Qantas A380 has been taken out of service for inspections at any one time.  “The inspection schedule for A380s has been planned in advance and there has been no disruption to Qantas services. “As each subsequent Qantas A380 approaches 1,300 flights it will be inspected and, if necessary, repaired.  “The A380 is 100 per cent safe to fly.  It remains the most popular aircraft in the Qantas fleet.” The airline also said that the cost of repairs would be covered by Airbus under warranty arrangements and noted it would discuss additional costs related to the process with Airbus separately.
