Re: What are the red ECAM messages on Airbus planes?

CFR 25.1322 amd 131 specifies that red alerts be for conditions that require immediate awareness and immediate action. EASA has an almost identical regulation. Boeing has long had this philosophy also. On the 777, the possible red warning EICAS messages are (off the top of my head): AUTOPILOT DISC O...
