OK, is anyone else surprised by the fact that the co-pilot only had 630 hrs TT?
In the US, one could not qualify for an ATP license with so few hours.

What has the number of hours the first officer had got to do with this outcome? If what we are told is correct this incident is not due to lack of skill or knowledge.

It could equally have been a captain with 20000 hours, this is a medical/policy issue not a total number of hours issue.
