When the Hamburg Airways flight’s landing gear failed to retract after taking off from St. Petersburg, the pilots had to circle for two hours before being able to return to the St. Petersburg airport.

The Swiss Europa league team was aboard, returning from the quarterfinals in St. Petersburg. Instead, they returned to St. Petersburg for their plane to be examined.

The flight to the competition also had problems. While en route from Basel to Russia, pilots diverted to Berlin. On the recommendation of team physician Marti, the pilot make an an emergency stop so that forward Mohamed Elneny could receive medical treatment for a dizzy spell. His medical diagnosis was caused by hypoglycemia and dehydration.
