A Corendon Dutch Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration PH-CDF performing flight CD-617 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Hurghada (Egypt), was enroute at FL350 about 20nm northwest of Munich (Germany) when the crew decided to turn around and return to Amsterdam reporting they had elevator defective pressure technical operational issues and needed to avoid icing conditions, therefore requested to stay high as long as practicable. The aircraft descended to FL340 for the return and landed safely on Amsterdam's runway 18R about 2 hours after departure.
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 5 hours, then departed again and reached Hurghada with a delay of about 6.5 hours.
