Hi all! I thought the video was a bit sensationalistic, but their main point, I believe, is that the pilots tried to go around after a microburst without pressing TOGA. Reasons implied were poor training and fatigue. In addition the airline was scrutinized with regards to various aspects of their seemingly poor safety culture.

(just as a side note, I'll try only to post if I have anything relevant to say like to summarise a 20 min video that some might not have time to view, I will refrain from telling professional pilots how to fly their plane because I would not know, please only bash me if cross the line)
