Low-Cost Airline

It has already been reported that the plane of the low-cost airline Germanwings, a subsidiary of the German airline Lufthansa, crashed on Tuesday morning in the French Alps on the way from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. The wreckage of the plane was found in a hard-to-reach mountain area. As early as Tuesday, aviation experts said that the age of the plane – 24 years – could not be the cause of the plane crash. Until now, Germanwings aircraft have not had any significant problems.

The New York Times reported on Thursday morning that only one pilot was likely to have piloted the plane at the time of the crash, as the other had left the cabin at the time, and investigators later reported that the pilot in the cabin had deliberately overturned the plane. Lubics crashed the plane after one was left in the cockpit. The captain of the plane had left and the co-pilot had blocked the entrance door to the cockpit, investigators say.
