    Emirates airline: Passengers sick on Dubai-New York flight

    Nineteen people have been taken ill after an Emirates airline plane landed in New York, officials say.

    The plane was quarantined at JFK airport as those on board were checked by health officials. Ten were taken to hospital but others refused treatment.

    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that initially about 100 people including some crew had complained of illness.

    Flight 203 from Dubai landed at 09:10 (13.10 GMT) with 521 passengers.

    Emergency vehicles were seen on the runway as it landed….

    Hard to know what happened but one passenger at least claims that the passengers were ill before the aircraft took off in Dubai…
