PARIS - Engineers have discovered minor cracks in the wings of a "limited number" of A380 superjumbos but their safe operation is not affected, planemaker Airbus said on Thursday.

"We confirm that minor cracks were found on some non-critical wing rib-skin attachments on a limited number of A380 aircraft," Airbus spokesman Stefan Schaffrath said by email.
