Don't believe it was an autoland, as in CAT-IIIc approach, since there is no decision height (DH) for those and the robo-voice clearly states "100 above", "Minimum", and "100", the "100 above" meaning they were at 200 feet AGL or 100 feet above their 100-foot AGL minimum.

Sorry OPNLY but the world is different out side of a 737 and SWA.
|Quoting Mcdu (Reply 4):|
If you listen to the video you hear "100 Above" and "minimums" immediately afterwards.

Accordingly, and with all due respect, I stand by my original statement.. Wink

For the first 10 seconds it looks as if they could be thousands of feet in the air!
|Quoting SailorOrion (Reply 19):
CAT IIIc is afaik not certified at any airport in the world for commercial operations. IIIb is at good as it gets (no DH, 150ft RVR)
|Quoting BALandorLivery (Reply 10):|
It had to be an autoland as there was no sound or visual alert to show that the autopilot was disconnected.
|Quoting FlyLKU (Reply 21):|
Please take a look at the following link which is a PDF of the approaches at JFK and scroll down to page 12 which shows the ILS 22L CAT III approaches. There is a Cat IIIc listed at the bottom of the plate and I believe the NA means "Not Applicable" and not "Not Authorized".
I stand corrected. I checked the abbreviations section of the Terminal Procedures: N/A is Not Applicable and NA is Not Authorized.

Correct me if I am wrong by heard on of the crew members say runway in sight just before 100 feet.
