"when autopilot engaged at 410 feet," says it all really. As many have suggested in this forum on previous occasions, what is wrong with hand flying the aircraft to (say) 10,000 feet or even transition altitude? Had one of them done this the other might have had time to reprogram the FMC from scratch providing, I suppose, the inbuilt systems in an A330 would allow the flight crew to do this once they were airborn?
