And if you ask me my opinion about this accident, I would have to ask why the manufacturer thought it was sensible to have an AT mode which tells you the AT is working, but doesn't let you know the thrust levers won't move.
This. And “this is the way we did it in the sixties” is not a valid excuse.

The children of the magenta line line trope is getting tired. I’m more concerned about someone who is reluctant to embrace change (look at the incomprehensible Boeing FMAs) and who thinks that everything in aviation is lightning fast reactions and seat of the pants skills.
