Krueger flaps are leading-edge devices (like the slats).

Flaps, ailerons, and hence flaperons are trailing-edge devices.

If the plane went down in a dive and oversped it could have lost a control surface or two but remained otherwise intact for a high speed slam into the water.

This is arguably the most beautiful Airbus type yet (not that it is very difficult to make something prettier than an A380).
