2015 Germanwings Crash Germanwings Lufthansa

Flights cancelled

24 Mar, 2015

Several Germanwings flights are cancelled after their crews refuse to fly over concerns the crash may have been linked to a repair to the nose-wheel landing doors on Monday, according to an unconfirmed report in Spiegel magazine. Lufthansa denies that there was any link between the repair and the cancelled flights. The airline confirms that the aircraft had been grounded for an hour on Monday for repairs to the nose-wheel landing doors, but insisted the issue was not “safety-related”.

The repair was purely to fix a noise that the door was making, and the aircraft was flying again from 10am on Monday.
