A TUIFly Boeing 737-800, registration D-AHFW performing flight X3-2158 from Munich (Germany) to Palma Mallorca,SP (Spain), was climbing out of Munich's runway 26L with a delay of about 90 minutes when the crew decided to stop the climb at FL070 due to fumes in the cabin. The aircraft landed safely back on Munich's runway 26L about 20 minutes after departure.

The aircraft was able to depart again after about 4 hours on the ground and reached Palma Mallorca with a delay of 5:45 hours.

The airline confirmed a light odour on board of the aircraft prompting the return and reported an engine wash had been conducted the night prior to the flight.
