I'm no "Sully-a-holic" like some, but guess the difference is (in metaphor format);

The US Airways crew were driving along and suddenly found themselves hurtling at a brick wall with 2 seconds to figure out what to do, yet managed to avoid it.

The LOT crew were driving along, just the same, and received a few text messages and roadside alert that there was a brick wall several hundred miles away and to be ready for it. Yet, somehow, they still managed to right into it (as far as the initial report makes it seem at this time)

Just because they were LUCKY enough to not kill or injure anybody does not mean they did an excellent job. If so much as one person ended up in the hospital and/or died due to this landing their heads would be rolling over the CB instead of receiving "medals".
