FAA orders A330/A340 sensors be replaced

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) (Washington) has ordered U.S. airlines (Northwest Airlines/Delta Air Lines and US Airways) to replace the A330/A340 Thales Avionics pitot tube sensors (there are currently no A340s being operated by a U.S. carrier). However a probable cause for the Air France A330 crash in the Atlantic Ocean still has not yet been determined.
