Shouldn't they cross check the GPS, it gives altitude, trend and ground speed (sufficent to realize they were't going too fast)? "At one point they could not decide whether they were climbing or falling after flying for minutes through a wall of ice particles that blocked the aircraft speed sensors."

I don't believe airbus is to blame. The recordings indicate serious miscommunication in the flight deck. Perhaps Air France should make CRM a higher priority in their training.
