While waiting for a recent flight, I observed this aircraft with what appear to be rather worn turbine blades. Is this close to being a safety issue or is it purely cosmetic?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Yes, it is safe. Prior to every flight, ground technicians and one of the pilots will complete a pre-flight walk around of the aircraft, which includes checking the engines thoroughly. Any issues with the turbine blades would be noticed at this point and the flight would not depart.
