Correct me if I am wrong but isn't that angle of attack control?

Hydraulics may fail, but computer systems are always error free! That is an accident waiting to happen unfortunately if you can't control the bird by hand

On the newer 'busses two horizontal magenta lines appear equidistantly (I think 15 knots either side) from the speed bug during descent. From what I have been observing I think that these are the limits between which no power changes are made by the autothrust to correct the profile. Instead corrections are made by pitching. Am I correct?

they make us go through that scenario during training. It's a pain in the a$$ to control, but it can be done.
