I fail to see the "repeat" connection.

More speculation on a loss of life that may never be solved.

Ok, the result was not the same but the fact that an Air France flight on the same route, roughly same location etc declared an emergency due to severe turbulence as AF 447 is intriguing. I agree we may never know what occurred aboard AF447 but most tend to agree that enroute wx played a part in whatever occurred that night.

But the french would declare mayday if they stubbed their toe.

Just sayin'.

The Frogs are pretty decent pilots as I recall, sounds like they handled it just fine.
Everyone got the heads-up on the Severe, they descended out of it and landed safely.

Where it occurred is the Intertropical Convergence Zone and it known for stuff like that this time of year.

No argument there. Just happens the 2 I've flown with were the biggest whiners-about everything.

a new low. Amazing.

And here on the world's most bitter, backstabbing, bickering, argumentative, egocentric, whining aviation forum, you won't have to wait long for someone to trump me.

Cheers!

I didn't say they weren't big whiners, hehe. Sound like everyday Airline pilots to me then.
