"Lufthansa pilot bids farewell with a dramatic gesture. Video sparks debate" - reads a post on portal X.

Such farewells are acknowledged at airports in countries where Lufthansa operates, and the airline itself supports these traditions. Los Angeles Airport knew this was the captain's last flight and had prearranged a water salute as a farewell gesture by the airport firefighters.

However, the dramatic exit received mixed reactions. A lively discussion surfaced on TikTok, with many questioning the legality of the maneuver. Supporters of the captain argued that there was no risk involved, noting that this kind of farewell is a long-standing tradition within Lufthansa, facilitated by the airline's highly skilled pilots and impeccably maintained aircraft. Nonetheless, it was suggested that passengers should have been informed about the wing rocking in advance.
