"The pilot did not report any problems. Until the very last moment things were normal between the pilot and the control tower" at Tripoli airport before Wednesday's early morning disaster, Neji Dhaou told AFP. "What I can confirm for now is that the aircraft struck the ground before reaching the runway,"

And the BBC on the Air France crash

Now concerns are emerging about speed monitors on board the Air France aircraft, and the revelation that this was a general issue of concern since May last year.

2 planeloads of passengers in brand new jets just fall out of the sky with no real warning. Ice was blamed in the case of the Air France jet, but that wouldnt apply here. And we have evidence that everything appeared normal until the last second.
Now AirFrance would have taken ages in free fall (4 minutes) whereas the Tripoli jet was about to touch down anyway. But in both instances, the plane stopped functioning immediately.

According to Der Spiegel, the icing problem continues to affect pitot tubes on Airbus planes. The company does offer a $420,000 add-on that will allow pilots to calibrate their bearings if the pitot tubes fail. Air France planes do not have that option.

As per wiki: over 600 units have been delivered. That's a lot of planes. Remember how fast they shelved the Concorde, even though there were only 3 and they knew exactly what the problem was?

Also from Wiki:

As of May 2010, the Airbus A330 has been involved in 13 incidents,[22] including three confirmed hull-loss accidents and three other losses, for a total of 338 fatalities.[23]

(the 104 from Tripoli have yet to be added to that number)

When is this plane going to be grounded? And why hasn't it already?

These planes are crashing due to EMI, my research suggests.

It's the same thing that causes Stuck Accelerators on Toyota and other cars since the early 90's

It's a problem on all fly by wire systems. They are subject to rogue signals, most likely causes by something like HAARP, or military tech.

Here's a thread I wrote about EMI's and Toyota. You would be surprised to see they are related.
