I must say that this crossed my mind when I first heard of how the plane in its last stretch headed straight for the mountains. I'm sure people will want to talk about this so I'm posting the subject. I don't know what to say except if you want to commit suicide do it on your own.

I am quoting from an op-ed from the NYTimes, published today.

"French investigators believe the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz, was conscious, but we may never know for sure. We do know that things might have turned out differently had there been another person in the cockpit. The chief executive of Lufthansa, which owns Germanwings, said on Thursday that European regulators do not require two people to be in the cockpit at all times.

By contrast, two people are required to be in the cockpit on United States airlines, according to the Federal Aviation Administration and an industry association. If one pilot has to go outside for any reason, flight attendants or off-duty pilots flying on the plane can step in. Such a policy makes sense and all airlines should adopt it. In an emergency, a flight attendant could try to open the door or call the other pilot back. Their presence would be useful not just in cases of deliberate sabotage but also if the pilot at the controls was incapacitated, by a heart attack, for example."

This makes complete sense considering what happened with 9525.

They can navigate a plane from the ground too. But they are afraid the system might be hacked so they haven't activated that thing.
