Given the context of that portion of the article, which the subjects are the pilots, not necessarily the crash or the aircraft, they write to that and report to the relevant facts.
It could have been the response to a question like "Could you hear the pilot? Was he talking?" Answer to that is "we can only hear him breath and the muffled sound of the pilot banging on the door..."
Until transcripts of the CVR are released we could assume many things and I would bet a shiny new nickel that not only access alarms, but low altitude, over speed, terrain, etc were sounding.

There is also the matter of the autopilot to 100ft, how do they know it was Lubitz, the pilot could have injected him, set the autopilot button, went to the bathroom then came back and pretended being locked out.
If the FDR hasn't yet been recovered, the door locking is speculative as is the exact timing of the autopilot button.

Well because it wasn't an accident. When you make a door no one can break into to protect from terrorists this type of thing can happen. Every action has unintended consequences. Now we know the people were aware of what was going on for several minutes. This makes the whole thing much worse imho. Captain goes to take a leak or whatever and the co pilot puts it in a shallow dive so he won't notice. Locks the door. That is some cold blooded # my friend. Absolutely frightening.
stop making stupid assumptions from almost no info
Airbus crash pilot Andreas Lubitz had been planning a spectacular gesture to make everyone "remember" who he was, it was claimed on Friday night.
An ex-girlfriend of the Germanwings pilot who crashed his plane in the French Alps, killing all 149 others on board, described him as "tormented" and able to hide secrets.
Maria, 26 (not her real name), told Bild newspaper that when she heard about the crash she remembered that he had said he was going do something "that would change the system" and "make everyone remember" him.
