During the departure from Sharm el Sheikh, the left ‘WING-BODY OVERHEAT’ caption illuminated and the crew shut down the left air conditioning pack in accordance with the non-normal checklist. After approximately 3.5 hours, the right air conditioning pack failed and cabin pressurisation was lost. The crew performed an emergency descent and diverted to Vienna. An engineering investigation determined that the left ‘WING-BODY OVERHEAT’ indication was spurious and the failure of a hose in the right pack had caused the loss of pressurisation.
