NY plane quarantined amid reports of ill passengers

Doctors were conducting respiratory tests on three passengers and seven crew members who were hospitalized with the most severe symptoms.

There were at least 500 people onboard the flight from Dubai.

Flight 203 was on an Airbus double-decker aircraft, a super jumbo jet, and was carrying 521 passengers, according to the CDC. "That did not happen this time".

Earlier, an Emirates spokeswoman had said that only 10 passengers on the flight were affected by the sickness.

A plane from Dubai has been quarantined in NY amid reports that multiple passengers were sick, officials said Wednesday.

Sykes and many other passengers were held on the plane for an additional two hours after the 13-hour flight landed in the U.S. The plane had stopped in Mecca, where there's a flu outbreak, Fox News reported.

Initial reports from NBC New York said up to 100 passengers said they felt sick, with sources saying about 18 people had been taken to the hospital.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's office said apart from the 10 people who had been taken to the hospital, nine people reported ill but declined medical attention.

It's unclear how long the plane will remain under quarantine for, or when the rest of the passengers will be allowed to leave.

Larry Coben, a passenger on the plane, posted pictures on Twitter of unaffected passengers being checked as they disembarked.

The CDC worked with Philadelphia health officers, emergency responders and Customs and Border Patrol agents to evaluate the sick passengers for influenza and other respiratory illnesses, CDC spokesman Benjamin Haynes said.
