Incident: Condor B763 near Bridgetown on Feb 24th 2012, cabin pressure problems

A Condor Boeing 767-300, registration D-ABUE performing flight DE-5123 from Bridgetown (Barbados) to Frankfurt/Main (Germany), was enroute about 45 minutes into the flight when the crew descended the aircraft and returned to Bridgetown for a safe landing.

A passenger reported the crew announced problems with the cabin pressure, dumped fuel and returned to Bridgetown. The about 220 passengers, returning from a cruise through the Caribbean, were taken to hotels. Following repairs over night the aircraft made test flights the following day and is expected to depart for Frankfurt later the day with a delay of 24 hours.
