Again, happy to hear #94 was mis-worded. Guilty as charged for only reading what it says, not what you actually meant. It must be those communication filters from the CRM class. Nothing new learned, but still worth going through as a refresher.

Besides, we lost the plot of the thread. I always understood the Ryanair bunch to be doing a stellar job with regards to training and standards. Given their experience-demographic, daily roster patterns, network airports and a few others, there is hard evidence of a well-run ship by the lack of incident reports over the years.

And they are no strangers to NPAs, hence the report comes as a surprise with the disregard of vertical awareness that it describes. Getting lost laterally is not that hard to do once the crew paint themselves in the corner, chart sheets start flying around the deck with everything upside down or on the reverse side, and fast slippery fingers cause the FMC do draw mandala circles on the ND. But vertical modes need to stay sacred under all circumstances.

The only difference from ITF148 https://aviation-safety.net/database...?id=19920120-0 could be the GPWS fitted, God's grace.
