Actually.... I have been.

Seems like SCAREbus has a problem, and doesn't know what is wrong.

It seems more like a media scare tactic, IMO.

The Airbus is built pretty decently. Severe turbulence can shake any aircraft.

I have been watching it for years...
It will come down to the wiring. Kapton is evil stuff over time.
It doesn't matter how the airframe is made, the airframe is not failing without help, and that help could be the wiring.

We don't own Airbus, the EU does, thus Barry can't take it over.

Can't ground it either, failures being failures, these are few and far between.
but having said that I have never flown on an Airbus product, nor will I.
