No existing commercial aircraft can be remote piloted without modification. They say that about Airbus when they have an incident too.
Much has been made of the fact the pilot and co-pilot didn't request to fly together, but can a pilot request a particular flight? Would they be aware in advance of a particularly valuable payload?
In addition to the pilots, other passengers and crew members on board the plane, as well as any ground staff who came into contact with it, are under investigation.
The blocking of passenger seats appears to indicate unusually heavy cargo was being carried on the plane.
