Again for all the B types. If your TLs are at climb setting after landing with manual throtles, what will YOUR aircraft do? will it not accelerate? will the speed not increase?

So nada what do you think, why (if true) was TL #2 left in CLB detent (like in another accident with 320)?

I'll tell you why. The pilots didn't expect the fwd thrust at all!

Let's put it that way, on AIRBUS there may be system behaviors in critical phases of flight which may be beyond the capabilities of an average pilot, sometimes beyond capabilities of an AIRBUS test pilot.
