Pilot fatigue may have been a factor. Canadian crews can legally fly a few hours longer per day than U.S. crews.

the pilots could have consulted their localizer display, their adf display, - this seems borderline criminal.

It's not that simple. This was an early serial number A320 - not equipped with GPS. They were flying an FMS-based RNAV approach. The FMS does not give you the option of tuning a navaid that is not part of the published procedure.

Had they tuned it in, they might have?
