A Condor Boeing 757-300, registration D-ABOB performing flight DE-1504 from Frankfurt/Main (Germany) to Palma Mallorca,SP (Spain), was cleared for and was taxiing for departure from runway 18 on taxiway N near intersection with taxiway N8 (in front of the main terminals, about 1.4nm before reaching the runway) when the crew needed to stop the aircraft suddenly due to a ground vehicle. The crew managed to stop in time to avoid a collision, however, a flight attendant lost balance and received injuries. The aircraft returned to the stand where paramedics took care of the injured cabin crew, who was subsequently taken to a hospital.

The aircraft was able to depart 2:45 hours later and reached Palma Mallorca with a delay of 2:45 hours.

The airline stated: "Die Boeing 757, die als Flug DE1504 am 20. Mai von Frankfurt nach Palma de Mallorca geplant war, musste auf dem Rollweg in Frankfurt am Main stark abbremsen, weil sich trotz Rollfreigabe auf dem Fahrweg ein fahrendes Fahrzeug befand. Weitere Personen wurden nicht verletzt und der Flug konnte anschließend fortgesetzt werden. Die Ursachen des Vorfalls werden nun von den zuständigen Behörden untersucht.", translation: The Boing 757, planned as flight DE-1504 on May 20th from Frankfurt to Palma de Mallorca, needed to abruptly stop on the taxiway in Frankfurt because a moving vehicle was on the taxiway despite clearance. There were no additional injuries and the flight could subsequently be continued. The causes are currently being investigated by the authorities.
