One month ago today (Sat.) criminal charges were filed against the captain of that flight.

Who thinks (or doesn't think) that factored into the Yamal crew's decision?

Some engine-outs are immediate "MAYDAY" situations - and some are not. Gotta take them as they happen.
Are you suggesting the accident was due to exceedance of MLW?
