Hapag-Lloyd Flight 3378 (HF-3378), registered as D-AHLB, was a commercial Hapag-Lloyd Airlines Airbus A310-304 flight, on July 12, 2000. It was carrying 142 passengers and 8 crew members from Chania, Greece to Hanover, Germany.

The flight departed at 10:59, after which it was noticed that it was not possible to fully retract the landing gear. As a result the pilot decided to shorten the flight to land in Munich, after the crew had estimated the fuel consumption using the Flight Management System (FMS). However, the FMS was not designed to take account a half-raised landing gear, and in fact there was not enough fuel to reach this destination. After an alarm at 12:49 informed the crew that there was only 1.3 tons of jet fuel left in the tanks, the pilot quickly redirected the flight to Vienna. However, the aircraft ran out of fuel with twenty kilometers to go, and the crew were left to glide the jet towards the runway. It touched down 500 meters short, striking airport equipment, spinning 120 degrees, and coming to a rest off the runway. Some of the passengers were injured, none seriously. The aircraft was a writeoff.
