Last Update: November 23, 2017 / 23:56:55 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported the aircraft was about 10-15 seconds into the first takeoff run when the crew rejected takeoff, the aircraft subsequently taxied slowly to the holding point, then lined up for departure again. The crew subsequently accelerated the engines (CFM56) several times to maximum thrust causing violent vibrations of the aircraft and slowed them again while remaining stationary, then the crew accelerated the engines and released the brakes however rejected takeoff again about 5 seconds after the engines had reached maximum thrust. Following that second attempt the aircraft returned to the apron. At the parking position the crew announced there were technical difficulties with an engine.
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 26 hours, then returned to service.
