Options Must Be Standard!

Unfortunately, if they didn't admit that after AF447, they probably never will.

As to the FINAL APP logic, yes, it's stupid with the level segments. I read on the Honeywell or Thales site that the A330 fmc has an update where it will fly a constant descent using the geometric path used for the rest of the descent. They don't seem to be interested in putting that in the 320 though.
Most interesting, Check Airman!
I am sure that airlines and manufacturers in the wake of the Max tragedies will rethink their "Profits Foremost, Savings First, Safety Last" policy.
It is an absolute scandal that contrived "options" are tantamount to safety being optional.
