The story at the moment seems to be they initiated a go-around but did not get full power. The implication is one of the crew should have engaged TOGA. Surely under these circumstances they couldn't have sat there without anything happening. Surely as soon as the engines didn't spool up hands would have lunged onto the throttle levers? On an MD83 what's the impact of applying power using the levers rather that using TOGA?
