On the Asiana accident the captain was coming off the A320 and was still on his initial operating experience with a brand new check airman in the right seat. They were cleared for a visual approach with a LOC backup. They were quite high and clearly concerned about that. They were at 1500' or so and had set the MAP altitude (3000') in the window and apparently had pushed the FLCH, with the speed selected to 137kts (Vapp). He then turned the a/p off. With the power advancing to THR REF the PF then retarded the throttles manually and it went into "hold" mode. My question is what would happen on the Airbus with the same sequence of button pushes? Is there anything similar to the "hold" mode where it lacks all protections and will let you stall the airplane?
