    Have they found the unaccounted passengers yet?

    This, plus the new information about the pilot and the fact that the co-pilot didn't make sure the pilot was landing correctly, puts serious questions about the airline.

    Great. So that one time is when the ILS was turned off, and these guys probably weren't trained on landing without it. Recipe for disaster. It's a miracle only two died, as horrible as it is for their families to deal with.

    They have. They simply went home. I don't think that the First Officer can question the Captain. It's just not done. It's a cultural thing. Asian carriers, unfortunately, have a reputation for being the most dangerous.

    Pretty sure I heard late Saturday that all had been accounted for.

    Too low and too slow.

    777 was dangerously close to stalling.

    Sounds like pilot error.

    Thar Jet has plenty of raw power to maintain critical airspeed.

    Captain had only a few hours behind the left seat.

    Simulators do not really teach you how to land. There's no other way to do it.

    I heard there was a third fatality that passed away yesterday.
