Now the pilots have to fly the plane :laughing: . I mean after all, it can’t be hard to put autopilot and autothrottle on, and then relax and drink that good airline coffee. :smiley: 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.
