I don’t agree. The 777 Autothrottle has the auto-reengage function. The 737 does not. It’s just that the Asiana crew screwed up the mode selection so badly that Auto-reengage didn’t function. I’m sure you are aware the Autothrottle was changed to better protect against such crew errors. The 777 als...
