Discussion – Can a passenger land an airliner if the pilots collapse? The experiment showed that probably not –

Ok, so specifically, what do you have to do during the approach – fuel distribution in the tanks, setting the pressurization to the altitude of the airport, CDU to VREF, minimums on the barometer, setting the navi, setting the autobrake, cabin notification, lights to the landing position, setting the QNH altimeter and its dual check, crew notification, flaps, ILS lock check, approach computer settings, approach landing autopilot settings… and so on and so forth.
Half of that is setting up assistants to help. After all, the autopilot also does thrust reduction and flare before touchdown.Pilots today are computer operators.
