They also hint in the WSJ the Americans were not working with the full details, so I guess the Chinese authorities might not have provided the voice recordings and the they had to take a guess just based on the airplane data.
    Seem to remember both black boxes were sent to the US for reading, due to the heavy damage sustained.

    The CVR sustained heavier damage than the FDR so perhaps they haven't decoded it yet.

    True. They where all male, unlikely to go together to the loo.

    No news on the voice recorder, or?

    I don’t know what’s worse. The story or the shocking grammatical error in the headline? Our dear old Auntie Beeb is not the leader it once was and this is not an isolated incident. They obviously don’t use a grammar checker before posting.
