Dunno what the big deal is to be honest. With a safety record, bar to none... Qantas is THE safest airline in the world.

Izzimyfizzi:
Qantas IS the safest airline according to passenger per air mile data, nobody put that in doubt. But it looks like they are operating 6 ticking time bombs in their fleet today. Th big deal is that this particular engine failure is a MAJOR failure, where pieces of the turbine managed to fling out of the engine nacelle, puncturing the wing. The wing is where 90% of the usuable fuel of a modern airliner is stored. As of right now, with the Rolls-Royce powerplant, this aircraft is no longer a guarantee of safety.
