The reason they didn't connect it to both AOA sensors is that there would then have to be a procedure for handling the scenario where the sensors disagree, meaning pilot retraining for the type, and $$$.

Best to just pummel a few hundred passengers into the ground instead:(


They did get away with it for some time. And blaming the dead pilots, whilst slipping in 'updates'  a little later is industry SOP. Which makes it even more moronic to let them self-certify.

Same practice in every industry where the cheapest option these days is to have the Fox looking after the Chicken coop. What could possibly go wrong with that? ::)

I read the book many years ago, and was also disgusted at their treatment of Branson. What Ive seen of him since has altered my view. I think its a great pity they didn't put him out of business permanently. I detest the grinning t wat.

I was just pissed off at the way BA acted. Under Lord King we were a great airline, once Marshall took over we started downhill. >:(

Depends, a decent fox will carefully manage the chickens to ensure ongoing growth and profitability...
