- Story Text: Almost one week after Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz apparently set his plane on course to crash into a mountainside, killing all 150 people on board, flowers, candles and teddy bears outside the airline's headquarters on Monday (March 30) reminded passers-by of the crash and its victims.
A television reporter was seen speaking to a camera next to a sculpture of a Germanwings plane tail, with flowers and candles at its foot.
In Berlin, a sign near the Germanwings counter read in English "Flight attendants don't die, they just fly higher. From Lufthansa for you," with flowers and candles placed below it.
The airline was not expected to make any statements on camera on Monday but did announce a news conference in the French city of Marseille which would be closed to cameras and other recording equipment.
There is still no known motive for why Lubitz would take the controls of the Airbus A320, lock the captain out of the cockpit and deliberately set it veering down from cruising altitude at 3,000 feet per minute.
Lufthansa, the parent company of the budget airline, said the carrier was unaware of a psychosomatic or any other illness affecting Lubitz.
