Geez, This sounds terrible, and very complex. Landing is hard enough, but with shifting winds, it get downright hairy.
I still can't why this happened. The TO/GA button should have driven the autothrottles forward. Heck, I would have jammed those forward manually.
I see the positive rate of climb could drop out, but the power should have been up right after pushing the button. With the flaps coming up to 20, the
positive rate of climb, the excess energy in the aircraft should have been enough to at least keep the plane level, IF the power had been advanced
Too many automated systems, not enough manual inputs.
