An Easyjet Airbus A319-100, registration G-EZII performing flight U2-3415 from Hamburg (Germany) to Paris Orly (France), was accelerating for takeoff from Hamburg's runway 33 but rejected takeoff at low speed and turned off the runway to the right short of the intersection with runway 23 via taxiway S.

A passenger seated at a left hand window of the A319 observed a Lufthansa Airbus A320-200, registration D-AIZA performing flight LH-2076 from Munich to Hamburg (Germany), touch down on runway 23 just as the A319 was turning off runway 33. The crew subsequently announced that they had received takeoff clearance and while accelerating saw the Lufthansa on short final and rejected takeoff.

The A319 departed Hamburg about 10 minutes later and reached Paris on time.

Germany's DFS (ATC provider) did not respond to The Aviation Herald's inquiry.

Germany's BFU confirmed on Jul 20th 2015 following some more lengthy research they are aware of the occurrence, the occurrence was not rated an accident or serious incident and will not be investigted by the BFU.
