"Fleet Grounded"

That's all I need to know about flying on that plane.

No thanks.

The A380 seems to have a few too many problems with it than I'd care to deal with as a passenger.

Billy Beck had a take on their fly-by-wire controls and what not from the Air France 447 flight from '09, that "quit flying," right over the Atlantic, all the while the pilots could do little more than attempt to reboot the computers so that they could actually fly the damned plane, instead of riding it straight down to the big blue.

Not sure how long it might be before the Airbus folks ever get the kinks worked out of that plane, but I'm betting that it's between too late and never.
