Emirates jet lands in NY with 10 ill passengers

The Emirates plane was quarantined after landing at JFK airport on Wednesday morning

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. "The safety & care of our customers is our first priority", the airline said in a statement.

Local media is reporting that officials from the Port Authority Police Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are on scene but did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Sometime around 11 a.m. passengers were escorted off the plane and evaluated by the CDC. Signs pointed to the possibility of flu, Phillips said.

A CDC rep told the magazine that they received reports of a plane with "passengers, including crew members, complaining of illness including cough, fever, and symptoms of gastrointestinal illness".
