I'm having difficulty differentiating between a SH task and a Routine Passenger Flight. Were there any additional/different criteria in GASOs?

I ask this because it takes us back round a previous buoy. If GASOs did have a different (higher?) requirement for "passenger flights", the the negligence on behalf of the hierarchy and the tasking chain is even stronger, bearing in mind all the airworthiness issues. Alternatively, the task was merely a routine SH task and the sad fact that there were so many fatalities should be divorced from the circumstances leading to the accident. This begs the question, if exactly the same accident had occurred with the only fatalities being four crew and a couple of servicemen going along on a buck-shee golfing weekend, would we be having this discussion?
