As Lufthansa Flight LH-9923 descended toward its final destination, Frankfurt, oil fumes were noticed on board. The plane was coming from Croatia.
After landing, the Airbus A321-200 was stationed on the ground for 15 hours, but returned to full service after. An investigation of the incident was not opened by Germany’s federal aviation agency.
The Aviation Herald covered an article on this issue here.
The fumes were not an isolated incident. The day prior, the same aircraft flying from Frankfurt to Croatia had another fume incident.
When the fumes entered the aircraft, the first officer reported he felt increasingly unwell and dizzy. Upon landing, both the captain and the officer were checked in to the local hospital. A story on this event is found here.
