The EASA airworthiness directive concerns carriers that fly Airbus A330/A340 jetliners equipped with Goodrich pitot probes stamped with the part number 0851HL.

“Several reports have recently been received of loose pneumatic quick-disconnect unions” on the probes in question, the agency said, adding that the problem might lie at the “equipment manufacturing level.”

The fault could result in an air leak that could in turn provide false airspeed indications, the statement said.

Ah yes – good luck with your Airbus flight if you have once scheduled.
