I must respectfully disagree with you on one point - and agree with you on another.

We are not even remotely close to technically replicating what a human pilot can bring to the game. There are...

I would like to know how many CVRs this poster, and others making similar claims, have actually analysed?

jdawg, you can count me in with that minority.

I disagree with the conclusion you have reached, in the face of few available facts at present - it's too early in this one to castigate the crew....

With the greatest of respect, I think you are clutching at straws now.

NO mention of 'mental history' was made when the original story was 'leaked', to my recollection - that followed later. I...

Noises of shouting, banging on the door, screaming from pax, clearly audible captain's voice from outside the FD - multiple sources show, IMHO, that Hypoxia can be ruled out BRD.

eezeegeebee,

You seem to have conveniently left out a few details in presenting your case - important details. Such as the (independently confirmed) act of deliberately selecting 100ft on the MCP...

Agreed, WillowRun - not saying I agree with the approach, just that that's the way it's panned out here.
