A Lufthansa Airbus A340-600, registration D-AIHR performing flight LH-411 from New York JFK,NY (USA) to Munich (Germany), was accelerating for takeoff from New York's runway 13R when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed due to the failure of a computer associated with the engine-fuel supply. The crew advised no assistance was needed, vacated the runway via taxiway PC (editorial note: just coincidence though fitting!) about 370 meters/1200 feet down the runway and returned to the apron. The computers were told manners via the reset button and the aircraft was able to depart about 15 minutes after rejecting takeoff. The aircraft reached Munich about 10 minutes behind schedule.
