You were correct first time. F/O 32 was PF in the RHS throughout. F/O 37 replaced the CPT in the LHS. F/O 37 had been resting (dozing) until not that long before the incident, which may partly explain his initial failure to get on top of the matter (UAS SOPs etc). Back to PJ2 - sitting for hours monitoring systems and then the speed of this emergency requiring instant quality hand flying airmanship skills (why the particular pitot tube model problem should have demanded a more urgent response, given the modern "hand flying" training and operating environment, given the history from Stony Point via Birgenair and Aeroperu)....
