The crew ventilated the aircraft, the flight attendants recovered and the boarding for the return flight was started. During boarding the health condition of the flight attendants deteriorated again, the boarding was halted, the passengers disembarked. The flight attendants were taken to hospitals. Three flight attendants were able to return to duty after treatment, a fourth flight attendant is still on sick leave estimated for at least 14 days.
The flight crew, who had remained unaffected, donned their oxygen masks for positioning the aircraft back to Germany without passengers and cabin crew departing London about 6.5 hours after landing and returned the aircraft to Cologne (already night curfew in Dusseldorf).
The Aviation Herald learned that maintenance attributed the fumes to a malfunction of the #2 pack. The aircraft was returned to service.
