Your posts make it obvious especially when you accused me of being biased against Airbus. For the record I have piloted both Boeing and Airbus and prefer the Boeing philosophy where the pilot is in control and not the computer as is the case on Airbus. I wouldn't expect you to understand due to your lack of experience in and knowledge of the aviation industry. As a pilot I know what is going on outside my aircraft whereas the computer doesn't. Last week I flew as a passenger on a 737-800 and a A321 from the same carrier. They had the same seats and overhead bins. The only difference when I used my foot as a measuring tool was a couple of extra inches in the aisle. Your posts make it obvious you hate Boeing especially when you state FBW is what saved Sullenberger being successful despite multiple expert claims to the contrary.
