If it speaks out “one hundred feet” and you don’t see anything on a see to land RNAV approach you need to think! I always have the distance to the runway threshold on my side and do a mental 3 to 1 in normal ops backup to try and catch mistakes like this.

Do their procedures not include a final fix altitude check?
