From RIAN today:

Plane to bring home Russian tourists from faulty airliner
RIA NOVOSTI. August 20, 2006, 5:31 PM

MOSCOW, August 20 (RIA Novosti) - A Tu-154 plane will soon fly to Italy to bring about 170 Russian tourists from a faulty airliner to Russia from Italy, an official spokesman of S7 airline said Sunday.
About 170 Russian tourists have been unable to leave the beach resort of Rimini in Italy for two days due to problems with an A-312 plane owned by Siberia-based S7, formerly Sibir airline.
"A Tu-154 flight has been planned," Ilya Novokhatsky said. "The plane will fly to Rimini and bring all the passengers back to Russia. At 16:30 p.m. local time (14:30 p.m. GMT), the plane will arrive at Rimini and will fly back to Moscow in several hours."

What is going on with S7 and the A310...it is getting a bit ridiculous, first a terrible crash, then all sorts of recurring technical issues...

Second incident is not really recurring. If you remember, Armavia had 2 of its planes destroyed in one week.

But since technical issues do happen occasionally, I'd say this is normal.
