This story just appeared on the BBC website.

Strange account of pilots seeming to be incapacitated due to loss of cabin
pressure.

seems very very strange. apparently the plane took off KNOWING there was a
issue with the AC units, then once above 11000 the masks for passengers
dropped down, and it was freezing cold. However the pilot and co pilot was
seen (by the 2x jet fighters) NOT TO BE WEARING there masks?!?!?!

The pilots oxygen would be supplied from bottles, whilst the passengers
comes from the "burning candle" type kits, is that right?

Maybe the pilots genuine oxygen packed up - reports say the passengers
bodies recovered all have oxygen masks on.
