Germanwings Crew Refuse to Fly

Germanwings have confirmed today that some pilots and cabin crew have refused to fly on the airlines flights following the devastating crash yesterday. 
Germanwings confirmed there were "occasional flight disruptions" on its network due to "crew members who decided not to operate aircraft" following the crash of Flight 4U9525 with 150 people aboard en route to Dusseldorf, Germany.

"We understand their decision," Thomas Winkelmann, a spokesman for Germanwings, said in an earlier statement.  Dusseldorf Airport said 24 Germanwings flights had been cancelled on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.
"Following the tragic accident yesterday, individual crews of Germanwings refused to fly," it said in a statement. "Six people spent the night on cots which were provided by the airport." London's Heathrow Airport also confirmed several flight disruptions.
