It seems to me that jet engines are becoming unreliable in a push for higher efficiency. The flame temperature is too high. There is a degradation of material in the hot part. Engines from reputed companies like P&W and Snecma have abnormal engine failures. Also engines have more issues when operated in hot weather.

The question remains how much of it is down to engines , FCS or external damage.

Do you have sources to back up your claims regarding Snecma having abnormal engines failures ?
