The working assumption by the US is a bomb.

If true, this will have a major impact on air travel, since the flight originated in Paris....a place already on heightened tensions for such heinous activity.

In recent attacks, bombs were smuggled through airports of somewhat less than sterling scrutiny.

My fear is that if you thought TSA lines were bad before, it is about to go beyond comparison.

And, I'm thinking international transfer of baggage and passengers might be going through a new filter; ie, a recognition that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link...and some of the big links may be flawed. It would not surprise me if all inbound cargo to the US went through initial re-screening again....or does it already?

Might not be a bomb. EASA has just (10 May 2016) come out with a proposed AD to prevent a rudder malfunction that might cause the vertical stabilizer to separate. I like Airbus, I really do, but they have grossly overcomplicated the flight control systems on a class of aircraft that is hardly bigger than the DC-9. Also, did the Egyptians ever release any flight data recorder information on the Russian aircraft that crashed in the Sinai?

Is there a way to see this AD that came out?

This one?

This should do it (EASA Airworthiness Directives Publishing Tool). If not just google 'EASA proposed airworthiness directive 16-066'.

That AD seemed to indicate rudder doublets could cause the tail to break...not sure they were doing rudder doublets at high cruise.

Now is the perfect time to brush up the aviation expert resume. Get on TV and make it big!
