frontrow, the alledged storm encounter occured several hours after takeoff. If the captain had alledgedly retired for his inflight rest, it has been already established that the rest of the operating crew were fully qualified for the safe operation of the flight. Untill such time that a definite cause can be established for this accident, which possibly will never be found if the FDR/CVR data can not be recovered, 2486 posts really do not prove a thing. I have experinced many thousands of hours of Boeing operations safely but would not dismiss the A330's record since it's first flight in 1992 with a total of 616 built so far and I'm willing to await the official report by the authorities of the bodies eminently qualified to provide a factual cause for the accident.
