The captain set everyone's fate because of his attitude. Unforgivable.

The co-pilot was a hero but he and innocent passengers lost their lives to a captain's arrogance.

When you don’t see the pilot in a interview after the names are mentioned you know it’s gonna be a bad flight...

The captain’s lack of common sense is amazing. With visibility at 9km, they could have just look outside the windows and they should see the and clearly it is not there.

Most airlines adopted the policy that if either pilots call for a go-around it takes precedence. Of course that policy has only been implemented after multiple deadly crashes like this.

The way he said "Yes Sir" sounded like he was submissively saying "I'll die for you, sir". Give this man a freaking Academy Award.

The captain was salty with his first officer and killed everyone on board because of that. Thank goodness they changed protocol.
