Last Update: January 30, 2017 / 22:18:01 GMT/Zulu time
The entire crew went to see a doctor.
D-ABYC operated by a stand by crew had already replaced another Boeing 747-800 registration D-ABYQ and the initial crew originally assigned to the flight. While D-ABYQ taxied out for departure from Frankfurt strong fumes occurred on board causing a number of passengers to suffer from eye irritations, subsequently a number of passengers vomitted. The crew aborted departure preparations before reaching a runway and returned to the gate.
A replacement replacement Boeing 747-800 registration D-ABYF reached Beijing as flight LH-720D with a delay of 20 hours.
Germany's BFU reported that they are aware of both occurrences of D-ABYQ and D-ABYC. The BFU collected extensive information concerning both aircraft, rated the occurrences incidents and did not open an investigation.
