Is the Airbus approach technology more friendly to a new pilot or passenger than a Boeing haptic approach?
If they have to pilot it manually, without training or guidance, a passenger has about as much chance to land an airliner as the airliner has to just happen to land on its own as it runs out of fuel. At least there will be less of it to burn.
It's not a ground vehicle, you can't wing it, and the runway is tiny compared to the sky.
Talkdown landings are a thing in GA and in a modern airliner it would come down to setting up the autoland system. However, the talkdown landing would be performed by the cabin crew, not a passenger. Cabin crew is trained in basic operation of the radios for emergencies including this one.
