You have to appreciate all the aural/visual warnings the AF447 crew got
I fully appreciate the misery the AF447 crew was in. It was not easy, and it's easy to loose oversight.

One thing that helps clearing your mind is: Master Warning Cancelling. You might have to do it several times. After that at least the cockpit is calm. Then you have to start doing your pilots job: Stabilize aircraft, memory items, organize cockpit. That's pretty basic stuff and what TTex600 describes as "it's about how a pilot flies an airplane".

You cannot generalize but with these tools in your mind, you can survive most incidents, on an Airbus and on any other aircraft. Because an Airbus is not different. It's obviously the thinking of some pilots on it that is different.
