The NTSB found in their initial findings that the crew had followed all company procedures (which are FAA approved) except for using autobrakes and being late in applying reverse thrust.

We don't know yet why the thrust reversers weren't applied immediately upon touchdown, but the crew made a legal approach and were stable and on speed at the time of touch down.

I don't even work for SWA, but leave the crucifiction of flight crews to the news organizations since they don't have any integrity anyway. Once again 2dot, your opinions are just that, stick to the facts.
Fair enough, duff, my bad. I guess two outta four ain't bad... on speed, on glideslope, and still out of ideas...note the slight 18 second delay in following SWA procedure. Damn those whacky little nuisances like reversers and airbrakes...not to mention the tailwind component, crummy RCR. Can anybody say air discipline?

Default Time to give it a rest.

Enough with the Monday morning quarterbacks. Why don't we scrutinize American's 1420 in Little Rock or 965 in Cali? Air Florida flight 90 in D.C? USAir in LAX? Delta 554 at La Guardia? Etc, etc. There's plenty of material out there, just pick an airline. How long are you guys going to pick these scabs? Do you feel good about yourself because it wasn't you? Are you happy that Southwest made a mistake? What's the deal?

It's time to give it a rest guys. Let it go.

Brown Dog.

no-one is infallible, we are all human and make mistakes

baseline error rate is 5-7 mistakes per hour...
