No last second calls ?

No quick text message ?

Did anyone on the plane communicate the fact they were doomed.

I find this odd.

It seems somebody would of got off some kind of Goodbye.

Did I miss it somehow ?

They say it was only an 8 minute descent...Heck probably 75% of people sleep on flights...Is it too much to assume that many probably had no clue there was an issue? Not saying that is the case, but who knows....If the co-pilot did commit suicide like they are saying is a possibility, maybe turned off the phone capabilities?? Not sure, basically all speculation...

Also might not have been within range of a cell tower.

Text messages? Considering it was high mountains, with high speed plaine - no cell coverage.

That only works in US, and only on 9-11 ...

I'm not sure how good cell reception is on a mountain or whether that flight had wi-fi service. Lots of things can be the cause of that.

good point no cell reception, people sleeping, people not aware, there was screams just before the end, sounded like they didn't know until then that something was wrong

That's what I was wondering.

Sounds like they only knew the end was near for a mercifully short time.

you would think the pilot trying to smash the door in for 8 minutes would have alerted most that there could have been a problem??

Most of the media are using this passage in some form or another,

"Passengers on the doomed Germanwings plane only knew they were about to die in the terrifying seconds before it crashed into the French Alps, it has emerged." That extract is from The Mirror online.

People near to the front surely knew something was going on, probably those in the back soon knew too, due to the banging on the door and hearing what the crew was saying. The reports say passengers were screaming in panic. Am guessing they could not connect to their phone networks.

A text message would have been the last thing on my mind. If I'd seen the pilot frantically trying to access the cockpit I would, oh I dunno....HELP HIM!

I wonder if maybe the passengers were aware of "something" minutes before the crash, but were clinging to hope until the last seconds and only then panicked. After all, the plane wasn't falling out of the sky, it was descending in a normal or near normal fashion as I understand it.

I believe...

They had cell reception. That's not the issue. I believe there is a misconception in the US that everyone on the planet lives on their cell phones and can do what they want. Rules in Europe are strict and adhered to because most people believe it is for the benefit of all. Cell phones were likely turned off. Welcome to socialism.

In the US, we live for ourselves. This is an important distinction. Most passengers were German, who live by the rule of law. It is a matter of honor to live according the rules set forth by the state. US folks cannot understand that because we are free people (well, for now). I hope the US is ready for that way of thinking, as our current administration is changing the US into a socialist state....but that's another story for another time.

The issue is that a suicidal person lost hope in life. Why did he take 100+ others with him? Simple. When you're suicidal, there is no hope - for anyone or anything. Eight minutes gave him the last chance of reconciling his fears and motivations with hope. Unfortunately, he probably realized that in the last 3 seconds before they crashed.

I think it's a shame that this happened. In typical fashion, the world - particularly the US - will react by setting new laws and rules that further constrict crew and passenger freedom. This will only exacerbate the human condition of being human.

The final solution to all of this and everything is that we must all act and be perfect. There is no other solution...or you are being human. To err is not human - there is a computer that tells us so.

Accept it or not, this will likely happen again until we humans are perfect.

Is that possible.....?



ADDENDUM: Here's an example:

I live in an apartment that has a urinal in the bathroom. It has an electronic sensor that determines when it shoudl flush. I, just now, went to the bathroom and it "decided" to flush 3 times while I was standing there peeing. Of course, I know I'm not done, but the computer decided on three separate occasions that my movements indicated I was done. I have just wasted three times the amount of water because it was the "correct" thing to do. As a human being with free choice, I would have decided - after the shake - that it was time to flush. But no, I am wrong. I obviously don't know when I'm done pissing. Alas....

Based on what?

I can go about 25 feet onto a back country hike in Yellowstone and lose all cell coverage let alone flying in a plane in a mountain rage over a non-populated area.

Yeah this. They knew they were doomed for 8 minutes. That's a long time to know you're going to die. Anyone that had cell phones was trying to reach out. I'm sure the pilot had some passenger help in trying to smash that door down too.

this was flying between Barcelona and Düsseldorf, a total flight time of 1 hour 32 mins, would you even have time to sleep?

Perhaps in Yellowstone, however this is Europe. Practically every valley and mountaintop is inhabited by humans to some extent. Europe is very small. Yellowstone is approximately 1/12 the size of Wyoming. Wyoming is nearly the size of Texas. 1/12 of Texas can cover 3-4 countries in Europe, depending on where you are. Of course this is only my approximation. You can do the math yourself, but needless to say Europe is much better covered than Yellowstone.
