The title of your source tells it all : "Wiki Alternative theories", especially telling when one knows the qualities of some of W 's contributions...
Your credibility rating is zero.
And a flight number doesn't tell an airline... AF culture on a regional jet ?
Sort of posts worthy of radio coco !
Pathetic!
Don't bother to answer, your posts will be transparent to me from now on.
Bonsoir.

Right, regarding your arguments, I can rest my case now. Why would a reputable mainline take any interest in the doings of a lowly regional carrier that happens to be a wholly owned subsidiary doing business in the name of AF?

Click off the Autos

This 'feature' has been known on 75's and 76's for some time now, it's a real gotcha if you're shooting a non-precision approach without a runway waypoint in the FMS database and the missed approach point is past the runway threshold. You get to minimums, see the runway, get an altitude capture and all hell breaks loose unless you immediately set the missed approach altitude in the window. Or, so they tell me.
If you happen to be flying a 757 or 767, and you do not like what the autoflight is doing, you may click off the A/P and click off the A/Ts and just fly the jet.
