Not totally as the difference between RA readings will trigger the AUTOLAND warning light for an ILS approach.

With only one RA below 100 feet, what other conditions must be in place to cause FLARE mode activation?
Except from being on an ILS approach, none.

As per the OEB as quoted by rudderrudderrat the consequences of an erroneous RA indication for the Airbus are numerous and surprising ...
Anyway, it is a long stretch to affirm that the AMS event would have ended differently if the aircraft was an Airbus ...
