Last Update: May 14, 2018 / 10:28:56 GMT/Zulu time
On May 8th 2018 Germany's BFU reported in their January Bulletin, a linecheck was under way (the timestamp 13:40L/12:40Z identifying flight X3-1467 to Munich). The first officer suffered from circulatory trouble and was replaced by the training captain, who so far had occupied the observer's seat, for the remainder of the flight. The first officer recovered within a few minutes.
On May 14th 2018 Tuifly told The Aviation Herald the first officer of flight X3-1383 to Hanover suffered problems with the blood circulation for a short period of time (also with the timestamp 12:40Z quoted by the BFU identifying the flight to Munich). A training captain performing a line check replaced the first officer for the remainder of the flight. Cabin crew took care of the first officer, checked his vital signs and established that the flight could be continued to Hanover. The first officer went on sick leave and was able to return to duties two days later.
