I don't think you can equate the 146 incident with the 380. Saw from the tower a Lear recover single engine via a GCA in absolutely atrocious weather after a double engine failure due ice ingestion, managed to relight one, even though compressor damage was extensive. Just doing their job i guess, self preservation and all. You may rail about the afterwards/circus of the 380 event, but it certainly was a major, major event in terms of an airborne emergency. I've always wondered what the outcome may have been had there been only two occupants on the flight deck to handle the work load.
