It seems to me that the decision of the preceeding flight to continue to destination may have been quite properly made on safety grounds, they could have felt that they needed that transit time to become fully confident in controlling the craft in manual mode, they had an agreed flight plan and could plan ahead, It may well have taken them that length of flight to become confident that they could manover without entering PIO.
