Lufthansa B744 at Frankfurt on Nov 16th 2016, rejected takeoff
Last Update: November 16, 2016 / 22:41:04 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported that fellow passengers on the left hand side of the aircraft saw another aircraft crossing their path. The captain later announced that they had been cleared for takeoff but takeoff clearance was cancelled due to crossing traffic. There was no technical reason, it was an ATC mistake.
According to radar data a Lufthansa Boeing 747-800, registration D-ABYH performing flight LH-498 from Frankfurt/Main to Mexico City (Mexico), departed Frankfurt's runway 25C at the same time and crossed runway 18 at about 300 feet AGL just when LH-464 stopped again.
