A Germanwings Pilot Emotionally Addressed Passengers One Day After Crash


On Tuesday, the copilot of Germanwings Flight 9525, Andreas Lubitz, deliberately crashed the plane.

Just one day later, a pilot from the same airline took it upon himself to promise his passengers a safe flight.

Passenger Britta Englisch posted a statement on the Germanwings' Facebook page recounting her initial nervewracking feelings boarding the flight, BuzzFeed reports.

Instead of closing the cabin door in the faces of his passengers, the pilot stepped into the aisle of the plane to assure everyone he planned to get them to the ground safely.

Thanks to the kindness of this pilot, Englisch and her fellow flyers had nothing to worry about.

The Facebook post, translated from German by BuzzFeed, reads,
