Now the pilots have to fly the plane . I mean after all, it can’t be hard to put autopilot and autothrottle on, and then relax and drink that good airline coffee. Just kidding…Does anyone know how much money the airlines save by using autothrottle as oppose to pilots?
Now when it says…
American Airlines grounded one of its 777-200s following a reported autothrottle problem last week
does that mean forever? I mean this type of problem shouldn’t permanently ground an airplane.
