So, basically, it’s an improved and “better” autoland…

Too much automation though.

Funny, but in IF when I fly the A320, I am often too hot on decent and end up having to apply spoilers and zero thrust to scrub speed. Guess I should teach Airbus my techniques! Or else I should just stick with my B737’s.

Try slowing down earlier, to have at least flaps 1. Then you can slow down easily.
