I think you mean "metaphorically" rather than "literally like", and also the pilots deserve better.
It wasn't the fault of the pilots, but they are the ones who get to be dead along with everybody else on board.
Someone went and killed a whole load of people in New Zealand because of a right wing ideology. In this case over 300 people have been killed because of an ideology that put share price ahead of lives. Guess who will go to prison?
