Federal health authorities and local police quarantined an Emirates Airline jumbo jet Wednesday morning in New York after passengers were reported ill on the flight from Dubai.
The plane landed at 9:12 a.m. at John F. Kennedy International Airport with “multiple sick passengers,” according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees the airport. Passengers had “flu-like” symptoms including fevers and coughs, according to New York’s mayor’s office.
Ten sick passengers were taken to nearby Jamaica Hospital, and another eight were treated at the airport, said Eric Phillips, a spokesman for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
