And there's no way that plane could continue to fly hands off if it had suffered such a catastrophic loss of systems.
Perhaps "fly" wasn't the right word, but from the linked article:
if the engines had died on a Boeing 777 at 35,000 feet, the glide slope would indicate that it could be about 100 miles from the last known location.
