A Lufthansa Airbus A321-200, registration D-AIRT performing flight LH-1447 from Moscow Domodedovo (Russia) to Frankfurt/Main (Germany), was climbing out of Moscow when shortly after becoming airborne and activation of the air conditioning system a strong odour developed on board. The flight crew assessed the circumstances and decided to continue the flight using their oxygen masks. The aircraft continued for a safe landing in Frankfurt about 3:10 hours later.

Germany's BFU reported in their monthly bulletin that crew described the strong smell as "musty-oily" and like "a hot foehn". None of the flight and cabin crew complained about any abnormal symptoms, however all crew went to a precautionary laboratory check to the airport clinics. Maintenance inspected and ground run engines and APU with no findings and without any smell developing.

The incident aircraft resumed service about 12 hours after landing.
