If explosive decompression is what you're talking about, it doesn't quite fit because it wouldn't cause the transponder and ACARS to stop sending and it wouldn't cause the aircraft to fly an unusual route to nowhere.
I agree, but just trying to go along the path Pihero and Kaiarahi are trying to guide us down away from suicidal crew, if a similar thing happened, I suppose it could be possible to punch in some waypoints to keep the aircraft flying so all hands are on deck to deal with the situation and they did descend in view of landing. But then something happened and they went right up to cruise again. I really did not intend to add to the speculation, but the point is shoddy mx is not unheard off at respected airlines, my example was BA
and this aircraft had been in for recent mx IIRC.

And a shout out to rcair1 for his summaries in the first 30 threads.
Yes, we need another one of these to start the next thread please.

Not one of the posters who had qualified the flight crew as grossly negligent / incompetent showed up on the thread. In the meantime, until the final report was published, the families of the flight crew continued to have to live with a public perception, fanned by a.net, that their husbands/fathers had killed themselves and others by sheer incompetence
In fairness, while I agree with all your posts, in this case it should be mentioned that the F/O knew things were wrong and told the captain more than once and advised to go around. He did not until it was far too late and could not. While that is not grossly negligent / incompetent, it was bad CRM best case and AFAIK any call to go around automatically means go around regardless if the PF
agrees or not.
However, your point stands and while I have also been guilty of it, we should not accuse dead people who can not defend themselves until confirmed otherwise.
Moving forward in these threads, I'm wondering if we should now just have a news thread solely for fresh news updates pertaining to the search and any other technical releases and a discussion on an NEW
developments pertaining to them and a separate thread for speculation, conspiracy theories and discussions on atheism, mental illness, psychology, politics, fictional data based on fictional hypothesis, the corealis effect etc?
