If the Airbus 380 can sustain THAT much damage from the RR engine failure and land safely, it must a pretty damn good airframe. I’ve read how the five pilots on board brought it in successfully — quite a story.
You need to look for RR engines. You want to fly GE engines instead.
If it aint Boeing, I aint going.
Airbus didn't make the engine.

(Ridiculing the ridiculous since the day I was born.)
Actually, being it a A380 or a Boeing aircraft has nothing to do with it, it was a Rolls-Royce engine...
It's a miracle that the metal from the jet engine at a high velocity didn't penetrate the fuselage and hit a passenger.
That it survived to land without any injuries says enough about the robustness of the aircraft.
Rolls Royce needs to do some work.
