Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!

That was a typo.  Korean won't receive their first A330 until next
year, and there is no -600 model of the A330.  The accident aircraft
was an

    A300-622R
      ^^

No fly-by-wire, and relatively tame computers.  While I avoid the
A320/A330/A340 series, the A300/A310, including the relatively new
A300-600 models, appear to be fine airplanes and I have no problem
with flying on them.
