A Lufthansa Airbus A321-200, registration D-AISR performing flight LH-854 from Frankfurt/Main (Germany) to Helsinki (Finland), was climbing out of Frankfurt when the crew stopped the climb at FL130 due to hydraulic problems. The aircraft entered a hold for about 20 minutes, then landed back on Frankfurt's runway 25L about 55 minutes after departure.

The passengers were taken to a hotel over night and were taken to Helsinki the following day by a replacement A321-100 registration D-AIRY arriving at their destination with a delay of 10 hours.

A listener on frequency reported the crew advised they had lost a hydraulic system. The aircraft subsequently landed with the gear doors open (editorial note: suggesting an alternate gear extension took place).
