On the flight from Mauritius to Frankfurt/Main, the pilot's health deteriorated increasingly, so that after about six hours of flying time, he no longer felt able to continue his duties as an airline pilot. He left the Senior First Officer (SFO) in charge of the aircraft and had himself treated by a doctor who was also a passenger. Prior to landing, an air emergency was declared after consultation with the air traffic controller and the co-pilot, who was pre-designated as the pilot in command (PF), landed the aircraft at the destination airport with the assistance of the SFO.
