Does the flight manifest of 1549 show that "top" BOA officials were on the plane to the extent that if there were no survivors, BOA would tank?

No, no, no and no, for the love of God No.
Bank of America, the troubled Charlotte-based bank, said 23 employees were aboard the plane. Wells Fargo, which acquired Charlotte-based Wachovia, had three employees on board.
A Wells Fargo spokeswoman told Dow Jones Newswires that “all three are safe.”
Bankers figured prominently in another aircraft crash that ended in a New York river. As DealBook’s Andrew Ross Sorkin reported in 2005, a helicopter carrying top executives from MBNA, the credit card giant, fell into the East River.
No one was seriously hurt. But days later, the deal that the MBNA executives had come to negotiate in secret was, as the company failed to sell itself to Wachovia. MBNA quickly sold itself to Bank of America for $35 billion.

So how exactly do you sabotage a plane and show damage consistant with a bird impact, and have feathers show up embedded in parts of the plane?
Oh wait, I forgot. We haven't SEEN feathers with our own eyes so it's not true right?
And for high-profile crashes, identification both by feather structure and by DNA will be performed. A bird strike over the Bronx reported by the pilot minutes after Flight 1549 took off from La Guardia Airport may have caused both engines to fail, forcing the emergency splash into the Hudson, which all 155 people on board survived. The feather was discovered attached to one of the plane’s wings.
While the National Transportation Safety Board will take months to determine whether bird strikes indeed caused the engine failures, investigators said on Wednesday that they had found a feather and evidence of “soft body impact damage” on the right engine. The left engine broke from the airplane after it hit the water, but police divers found it on Wednesday on the river bottom.
The safety board also said the left engine, which was recovered on Friday, had dents on its inlet lip and broken and missing guide vanes.
Earlier this week, the safety board said the right engine also revealed evidence of "soft body damage" and that "organic material" was found in that engine and on the wings and fuselage. A single feather also was found.
