A Germania Flug Airbus A319-100, registration HB-JOG performing flight GM-3023 from Hurghada (Egypt) to Zurich (Switzerland), was climbing out of Hurghada when the crew stopped the climb and entered a hold due to problems with one of the engine (CFM56) computers. The aircraft returned to Hurghada for a safe landing.

A passenger reported they noticed that the aircraft stopped climbing and appeared to be holding. About 20 minutes the crew announced there was a problem with one of the engine's computers and they needed to return to Hurghada. About 50 minutes after landing passengers disembarked, were supplied with food and accomodation for the night.

The airline reported the aircraft returned due to technical irregularity. The problem could be repaired within a few hours, however, due to the night curfew in Zurich the aircraft could not depart anymore and the flight was postponed to the next morning.
