The Air France statement reads as follows:
A very brief 6-second anomaly in airspeed data display was observed on 13 July on an Airbus A320 aircraft (Flight AF1905, Rome - Paris Charles de Gaulle) fitted with the Thalès BA probes (latest model). This was probably due to icing at high altitude. The crew applied the necessary procedures and the aircraft maintained its flight path with no change.
As the failure of the airspeed sensors had been reported in the ACARS messages at the time of the accident of the Rio-Paris flight, particular attention is accorded by all crews to the accuracy of the speed indications. Even though fleeting, the incident on the A320 was reported, and is currently being closely examined by the manufacturers and the authorities.
At this stage, it should be clear to all that the extreme vigilance of the pilots, maintenance personnel, specialists working for the manufacturers and the authorities is the best guarantee that the flights carried out with the various types of authorized sensors take place in complete safety.
