Last Update: June 18, 2019 / 23:01:31 GMT/Zulu time
Parents of a passenger reported their child had called them from an ambulance advising a lot of people had fainted, others were vomitting and others were suffering from heavy nose bleeding. People were taken to ambulances on stretchers. The odour reminded of a massive fuel leak.
The airline confirmed an odour event, a number of passengers and crew were assessed at local medical facilities.
A replacement A320-200 registration G-GATH was dispatched to Frankfurt, resumed the flight and reached Dalaman with a delay of about 7.5 hours.
