This story conveniently overlooks high-impact aircraft groundings due to engine defects. Such as the issues with P-W geared turbo-fan on A320 series. And the year-long grounding of B-777s with P-W 4000-112 series engines.

Its too bad the article noted was incomplete but focused on Boeing mainly and Airbus had two lost with control problems software generated and nothing about those two.
