For your interest, because I think people who only get their information from the internet/social media don’t really realize this:
The co-pilot that caused the plane crash is considered a murderer throughout the German language media. His actions are NOT excused by his clinical depression. The reason why no one calls him a terrorist is because terrorists kill for an ideology. This man, however, seems to just have taken 150 people to death with him for no other reason than his personal suicide.
Was this criminal act absolutely disgusting? Yes. Is it terrorism? No. Is that man a mass murderer? Yes.

Basically-

Anders Brevik is a terrorist

Andreas Lubitz is a mass murderer.
