Cold WX may be a casual factor

Flight tracking data, if correct, indicates A/C platformed at 3100', Jep chart states 3400'.
M09 ~ 10% diff ~= 300'
Just an observation of the published data.

A380 EMERG ELEC CONF - ATHR OFF?

After loss of all ELEC GENs in EMERG ELEC CONF, Auto Thrust (ATHR) remains engaged, however the ECAM actions call (about half way through the list) for ATHR OFF.
Why manual THR when the ATHR works?
