Airbus owns up to A380 wing cracks - Is EU safe to fly?

As we posted earlier this month on the Airbus wings' cracking up as being a suitable emblem for the EU, read here, the EADS announcement this evening was as follows:

Airbus blamed a recent series of A380 wing cracks on a combination of design and manufacturing flaws and said it had worked out a two-stage solution, while stressing the superjumbo was in the meantime safe to fly.

Following developments on the EU's second most important prestige project, the Airbus, is becoming as tortuous and fraught as following that of its first such, the Euro, one such most recent comment is here.
