    Because of the mountains? (I know nothing about any of this.)

    A radically different characterization than before. Also oversimplified.
    Wait, pilot confusion that led to that Airbus being flown into the Ocean was my initial statement and also qualifies as pilot error.

    I dont see the distinctions between the two probably because they don't exist.

    Right. Cell reception is already near-impossible in-flight, let alone in a remote, mountainous area. Although I don't know how many cell phone towers are in the Alps.

    You implied it had something to do with Airbus "removing the pilot from the equation." This is not the case. The pilots responded incorrectly to an unusual situation, but this had nothing to do with the aircraft's automation.

    Bull !

    You're not the only person with ties to the industry or that has knowledge of how these carriers work.

    I still have my AnP license from when I worked for a major American carrrier 20 years ago and.

    The Airbus 447 Autopilot disconnected after erroneous airspeed indications.

    The pilots reacted incorrectly and put the plane into the drink

    I really hope for those 8 minutes the passengers had no idea that something was wrong.

    Agreed. It would be a long 8 minutes of pure hell.

    Yes, and that reaction didn't have anything to do with automation.
