Dead Stowaway Discovered in Landing Gear of a Lufthansa Plane That Had Just Flown From the Iranian Capital Tehran

The dead body of a man was found by maintenance workers in the landing gear of a Lufthansa aircraft that had just arrived from Iran’s capital Tehran on Thursday morning according to local media reports.

The gruesome discovery was made after the Airbus A340 aircraft had been towed to a maintenance hangar shortly after the five-hour flight from Tehran which departed at around 1:49 am local time and landed in Germany at about 5:18 am on Thursday morning.

Lufthansa flight LH601 from Tehran to Frankfurt has been cancelled on Friday and Saturday, although the airline did not immediately confirm whether the discovery of the dead stowaway was behind the decision to cancel the service.

In September, Lufthansa returned to operating a daily service between Frankfurt and Tehran and the route has remained pretty stable despite political volatility in the region.

Iran has been rocked by protests in recent weeks following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was detained and beaten by Iran’s notorious morality police because she walked down the street without a headscarf.

A crack down on international reports has made it hard for what’s happening in the country to be independently verified, and Lufthansa has not said whether the decision to suspend its Tehran service is due protest activity in the country.
