Many thanks to the friendly flight crew who were most happy to explain several of the aircraft's systems.

This is a unique perspective - I like it. re the glass covers: They are important switches. They turn off the FADEC. On another aircraft by the same manufacturer, those switches are placed next to the APU control switch and they feel identical you go to turn off the APU, you grab the engine FADEC switch by mistake and turn them off. Nothing happens until you bring the throttles to idle to descend in cruise - engine shuts down. At least in the 170/175, it looks like they kept the same switch design from the other aircraft, but the FADEC switch is nowhere near the APU switch.
