Consider: The co-pilot, with significantly more B777 experience, did not challenge the captains throttle settings, airspeed or anything. The captain was allowed to save face, all the way to impact.
And the "co-pilot" would certainly have been a more senior captain who outranked the pilot in the captain's seat, which makes it even stranger.

If they were both Captain Lee perhaps they confused themselves.
Isn’t it possible that captain was senior overall, but just new on the 777?
