Instead of pointing the finger at training, and crew experience, I would be looking at time pressures, and perhaps the crew "expediting" to keep the operation moving.(FTL limits maybe?)...as to letting it accelerate and flying it off, it would take some awareness on part of the crew as to why the aircraft was not behaving normally, and not likely they ever realized why the aircraft was stalling, therefore an increase in AOA in an attempt to lift off would have been intuitive..sure the facts will emerge..until then we learn from this incident, not cast aspersions on the crew or airline..there but for the grace of God go any of us.
