A Lufthansa Airbus A350-900, registration D-AIXI performing flight LH-500 from Munich (Germany) to Rio de Janeiro,RJ (Brazil) with 263 people on board, had just levelled off at FL310 about 160nm southwest of Munich in Swiss Airspace when the crew decided to return to Munich due to hydraulic problems. The crew advised that they might not be able to vacate the runway. The aircraft landed safely on runway 08R despite open gear doors and was able to vacate the runway.

A replacement A350-900 registration D-AIXH departed Munich about 5:45 hours after D-AIXI had landed back and is estimated to reach Rio with a delay of about 7.5 hours.
