Last Update: March 3, 2016 / 21:58:22 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft was able to depart about 35 minutes later and reached Berlin with a delay of one hour.
A passenger reported that the aircraft was delayed due to the need to be de-iced when it taxied onto the runway and came to a full stop. The engines subsequently spooled up with brakes applied, the brakes were released and about 2 seconds later, as felt by the passenger, the brakes came on again and the engines spooled down. The aircraft taxied back to the apron, the first officer made an announcement that a "small problem" had occurred. The aircraft was connected to ground power on the stand and the flight attendants served water, then the captain announced that there had been a "major technical problem" and asked the passengers to disembark as soon as the busses already ordered would arrive. The busses arrived, however, the passengers were kept on board, the captain announced that the problem likely was resolved by a reset of the bord computers, they would need to taxi to the runway and attempt another takeoff to see what happens, the captain stated "I promise you it will work only in that way". Two passengers decided to disembark upon that announcement, the rest remained on board. Soon after the aircraft departed without further problem.
