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.
Someone posted on another crash thread yesterday that he is a 777 pilot who flies out of SFO.
He said that asian pilots [due to their culture] give tremendous defference to the pilot in command - even when they see things going wrong.
Something about respecting authority ...
