Emirates Plane Quarantined After 100 Passengers Report Getting Ill During A Flight!

The emergency services are seen after the passengers were taken ill on a flight from New York to Dubai on JFK Airport New York U.S

Health authorities said they were exercising "an abundance of caution" at Philadelphia's airport following the NY scare.

Yesterday, a flight that had left Dubai in the United Arab Emirates landed at JFK International Airport in the USA state of NY with 549 passengers and crew on board-and was promptly quarantined due to a mysterious ailment spreading throughout the cabin.

- Emergency personnel responded to reports of sick passengers aboard an Emirates flight arriving at John F. Kennedy Airport on Wednesday morning. "Nine passengers underwent additional medical screening at the site near the aircraft and were released afterwards", said the spokeswoman for Dubai-based Emirates.

Eric Phillips, a spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio, tweeted that the flight had stopped in Mecca, which was now in the grip of a flu outbreak.

The plane was quarantined and members of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Port Authority of NY and New Jersey screened all passengers and crew members before they could leave the aircraft.

Twelve passengers on global flights that landed at Philadelphia worldwide Airport on Thursday are showing flu-like symptoms, airport officials said.

"When they were standing in line to board, people were coughing", she said.

A press secretary for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Thursday that test results had confirmed influenza. A total of three passengers and seven crew members were transferred to a hospital.

Photos, taken by passengers inside the plane, show the flight crew leaving the aircraft.

Ambulances were on hand to transport sick passengers, Phillips tweeted.
