They would not be the first to get so involved with the landing that they screwed the pooch. See Capt. Asoh's noble defense. If they had a double podstrike plus maybe a tailstrike, why didn't they...

On loss of cabin pressure, it automatically kicks and requires being overridden. It also does so if it thinks the pilot is acting all VFR-in-IMC. Just hope that the guy who emergency autolanded ahead...
