down_shift, what you posted is not bigotry at all. There is documented analysis on the command and control nature of different cultures and its impact on the cockpit environment. It's not just some Asian cultures, but there are Latin American cultures that exhibit the same propensity to not challenge authority. Remember the Avianca flight that ran out of fuel over Long Isand enroute to JFK?

Check out a great book, Outliers, which delves into the factors that lead to success. There's a chapter dedicated to the cultural effect in the cockpit. Excellent read.

The UA DC-8 crash in Portland were there the FO and FE knew they were low on gas yet failed to communicate this urgency to the left seat. The AA 757 that smacked the mountain in Columbia. Maintenance practices (suspending the engine on the front pin) on the AA DC-10 in Chicago. Maintenance practices (lubrication on the stab trim jackscrew) on the Alaskan MD-80 in the Pacific. There are many examples of Anglos loosing situational awareness.

Good book and a short blurb on that very chapter: http://blogs.wsj.com/middleseat/2008...plane-crashes/
