    Interesting to see if it's somehow related the earlier engine issues on the A380.

    Who knows the manufacture of the engines Air France uses on the A380?

    Aircraft: F-HPJE
    Age: 7.3 years
    All 496 passengers and 24 crew landed and safe.

      According to AvHerald, this plane has Engine Alliance engines. Previous issues were with Rolls Royce.
