That wouldn't explain the pitch up attitude that was reported. In addition, as far as I know engines can operate on suction (the engines have pumps within them, the boost pumps just maintain the pressure to prevent cavitation I heard). And if there was low fuel pressure, I presume there would be LOW FUEL PRESSURE in amber on the EICAS.
If the plane wasn't climbing due to lack of speed, the pilot would likely not have pulled back on the stick, because that would make the problem worse.
I think it is more reasonable to suggest it was either a failure of part of the aircraft coupled to human factors, or the cargo shifted.edit on 1/5/13 by C0bzz because: (no reason given)
