Did accountants crash Air France flight 447?

There is much speculation about why Air France flight 447 crashed. Being near an international airport (Gatwick) you do meet and chat to a number of people experienced in flying and crewing international flights.

I have had a number of conversations which go like this:

We used to fly around these sorts of storms, which is easier now because of whether radar, but now because of the cost of delays crews are ordered to fly through them.

Make of that what you will.

I agree. If airlines were not so concerned about fuel costs and canceled tickets, we might have 228 souls still with us today!!

The Air France Flight 447 crash investigation will go on for another one and one half years. This is according to the French Investigation Director.
