It is a bit worrying that this is the third IFSD that EK has had in 4 days.

I think it's good practice to shut down and have a think:
From AVHerald report: "........climbing out of Sydney's runway 34L when upon contacting departure the crew declared PAN reporting they needed to shut the #3 engine (GP7270, inboard right hand) down and requested to stop climb at FL110 and continue on planned track until decision was made whether to return or continue, controller indicating the aircraft was needed higher to not leave controlled air space, the aircraft subsequently climbed to FL160 and FL190. The crew subsequently decided to return to Sydney, dumped fuel and landed safely on runway 34L about 90 minutes after departure......"

The fact that the flight crew considered continuing would lead me to guess that it was a relatively benign engine shutdown.

The other two were another A380 and a 777-300.

The aircraft set course in direction of Frankfurt/Main (Germany) descending to FL100, about 85nm east of Frankfurt the aircraft changed course to fly south around Frankfurt and divert to Paris (France).

I'm in the industry and I can assure you that flying is the safest mode of transport. Please note that no one was even scratched in any of these incidents.
