Of course BEA, Air France and AB were going to try and find the wreckage come what may. The simple reason for this was they didn't know what happened and not knowing means that there could be a reaccurence. Knowing what happens means that they have a possibility of avoiding this reaccurence. There was never any question of them abandoning the search until they had found the aircraft. Pressure from families and other bodies was a side issue. The French authorities have done an excellent job in finding and recovering the FDR and instead of being churlish about this you should be acknowledging the good work.
