Last Update: January 15, 2013 / 11:50:30 GMT/Zulu time
Germany's BFU reported in their monthly bulletin that the odour was noticed also in the cabin, a number of passengers also complained about irritations of eyes and throats and nausea. After vacating the runway the aircraft stopped on the adjacent taxiway, the air conditioning systems and engines were shut down, the air on board rapidly improved. Both pilots and all 4 cabin crew went to medical checks to a hospital in London, returned to Frankfurt as passengers and underwent a medical examination at a hospital in Frankfurt. The medical examination found no anomaly. The aircraft departed London after about 90 minutes on the ground, positioned back to Frankfurt with airline technicians on board taking measurements, amongst them electronic air quality measurement and video borescopic examination of the engines but also did not detect any anomaly.
Following arrival in Frankfurt the aircraft resumed service one hour after landing in Frankfurt and about 4 hours after landing in London.
