A TUIFly Boeing 737-700 in Air Berlin Colours and on behalf of Air Berlin, registration D-AHXF performing flight AB-6110 from Munich to Cologne (Germany), was accelerating for takeoff from runway 26R when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed due to a right hand engine (CFM56) problem. The aircraft slowed safely and vacated the runway on a high speed turn off about 1650 meters down the runway.

A passenger reported that sparks were seen from the right hand engine, at almost the same time the brakes came on. After the aircraft stopped to have the engine inspected the crew announced, that there was currently no abnormal indication in the cockpit, in coordination with technical staff in Hamburg they would return to the gate for safety reasons. Repairs were obviously carried out, parts were brought to the aircraft, the departure was postponed for about 5.5 hours, then the flight was cancelled.

The flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.
