It would be pretty easy to engineer that door to make the answer to the bev cart question "Infinity".

German air traffic authority seeks emergency systems on commercial flights

Quote
In light of the Germanwings flight crash last month, the German aviation authority has urged the industry to create a technology that will allow air traffic controllers to override a pilot’s commands and take over the aircraft in emergency situations.

“We have to think past today’s technology,” Klaus Dieter Scheurle, head of the Deutsche Flugsicherung air traffic control authority said at a press conference on Wednesday, as he urged the aviation industry to develop a reliable remote control system for commercial aircraft.

The idea emerges following the tragedy of Germanwings Flight 9525 on March 24, where co-pilot Andreas Lubitz locked himself in in the cockpit and deliberately crashed the aircraft in the French Alps, killing all 150 people onboard.
Texas Christian University coach Gary Patterson has been hired as Kansas State's 34th football coach, multiple sources have confirmed to GoPowercat.com.  Patterson replaces Ron Prince, who was fired Wednesday. - Tim Fitzgerald   Nov, 7, 2008

Would a drone pilot have emergency landed on the hudson and saved hundreds of lives k-s-u?

In serious answer to your question, it's unlikely that a drone pilot could or would have taken over control in such a situation at low altitude right after takeoff. Simply not enough time.

The drone tech could have avoided disasters at higher altitude and longer flight time, such as the Germanwings and Air Egypt and Malaysia Airlines suicides, the 9/11 hijackings, and the Air France and Air Asia (likely) weather related pilot errors. But that's still a lot of crashes that could have been avoided and about 4k lives saved?

Our drone techs are going to be saving german, egyptian, and malaysian planes too? maybe clams was on to something with the moon satellite.

We already have cross-carrier data interfaces set up by the plane manufacturers (pretty much just Boeing and Airbus for big commercial jets), not to mention manufacturers of some of the jet components (Mercedes Benz, etc.)

So cooperation among carriers doesn't seem like the difficult part at all. The hardest part would be setting up a system that could respond quickly enough.

Saw a story that the flight computer actually put the plane in the perfect angle of attack for a soft landing and all that Sully actually did was line it up on the river. If he would have tried the landing on his own it probably would not have turned out so well.

the plane could have secretly landed on an island then removed the flaperon and dumped in the ocean to cover their tracks

What island would be small enough to hide that, yet have a runway big enough? Genuinely asking, not being snarky.

They aren't sure what part of the plane it is, but they are sure it blew up in mid air.

right..

An intentional depressurization would have been an obvious way—and probably the only way—to subdue a potentially unruly cabin in an airplane that was going to remain in flight for hours to come. In the cabin, the effect would have gone unnoticed but for the sudden appearance of the drop-down oxygen masks and perhaps the cabin crew’s use of the few portable units of similar design. None of those cabin masks was intended for more than about 15 minutes of use during emergency descents to altitudes below 13,000 feet; they would have been of no value at all cruising at 40,000 feet. The cabin occupants would have become incapacitated within a couple of minutes, lost consciousness, and gently died without any choking or gasping for air. The scene would have been dimly lit by the emergency lights, with the dead belted into their seats, their faces nestled in the worthless oxygen masks dangling on tubes from the ceiling.
