This is a bit far from the crash site, but just something to consider: I flew from TXL to LHR this morning, and while it was apparently clear skies - blue sky from horizon to horizon - when viewed from below, it was very hazy once in the air. Lost sight of the ground pretty soon after take-off.

I've occasionally done up to 6000ft/min descent rate in the A320. 3-4000ft/min is not unusual in my opinion.

So please lets not jump to conclusions or any accusations.
It is a sad day and I am really shocked as it is the LH Group and I am working for LH. Still not sure if I know anybody of the crew...

Worst reporting in history on CBS News This Morning regarding the safety of this LCC where they went on to crucify LCCs and misquote everyone in the industry. Wish I caught the name of the reporter.
