Once I read it was a Ryan crew it made perfect sense
"startle effect" I must remember that one.
Finally something like the old FA squawks. It stands out from the frequent mind-numbing tripe that clutters up the threads.
at least it did until you had to come along and soil it with your commentary. well done!
After reading this, I called a couple of friends who are airline pilots. One flew the B737 for years before moving up to heavier iron and the other currently flies B737s. Both guys said Vertical Speed mode is their preferred method for initiating a descent from cruise altitude. One likes to switch to VNAV once the descent is stabilized, but the other says he stays in VS mode as long as possible. Apparently they agree with Silent Bob's opinion of VNAV, at least at the start of descent.
