BREAKING: Dubai Flight Quarantined After Landing in NYC

Passengers have been quarantined on board an Emirates airplane at JFK airport in New York, after 100 reportedly fell seriously ill during a flight from Dubai.

A plane landing at John F. Kennedy airport has been quarantined after about 100 passengers reported feeling sick on board the flight, airport sources say.

Emirates flight 203 from Dubai was headed to New York when at least 100 of the 500 passengers on board reported feeling ill.

The flight landed at JFK Wednesday morning about 9:10 a.m. where Port Authority Police and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were waiting in a staging area to check passengers.

The mayor’s office confirmed the report, saying the plane had been quarantined.

A passenger on board the flight posted an image of more than a dozen emergency response vehicles waiting outside the plane on the runway. Larry Coben said they were advised on board that people were sick, but he had not seen any sick people himself. He added that the plane was two levels.
