An Emirates double-decker jumbo jet landed at JFK airport carrying 860 passengers. When the plane landed it was quarantined due to approximately 100 passengers that had gotten sick during the 14 hour flight from Dubai.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were on the scene along with ambulances to determine the cause of the outbreak.
The plane landed at 9:15 in the morning and as of 5:00 pm all passengers were off the flight. 3 passengers and 7 crew members were taken to the hospital.
Can you Imagine being on a flight for 14 hours to then be stuck on the runaway for additional hours knowing there are sick people on board?
