Re: A321neo operators alerted over 'excessive pitch' anomaly

I will avoid venturing into an A vs B discussion and only post the following observation: There are certainly no "excessive pitch" issues in the British Airways A321Neo fleet: https://www.turningleftforless.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/A320neo-1.png Hahaha! Good one.

You can pull back on the side stick all day long and hard as you want, and the 320 will only pitch up to its software limit. Unlike a Boeing where it'll let you pull loops if you try hard enough. This should be a very simple software change. That’s because it’s Boeing’s philosophy that the Captain ...
