Plane from Dubai quarantined at NYC airport after passengers fall ill

NEW YORK CITY- Emergency crews are responding to JFK Airport after a jetliner carrying dozens of passengers described as seriously ill landed at JFK International Airport. Emirates Flight 203 from Dubai arrived at 8:50 a.m. Wednesday

USA media initially reported that 100 passengers had been taken ill and that the jet had been quarantined.

A representative from American Airlines told TIME that all passengers deplaned normally, and neither the passengers nor the aircrafts were quarantined.

In a second statement, Emirates has confirmed all passengers have disembarked from the flight.

"12 passengers from the two flights reported sore throat and cough; none were identified with fever".

The flight, which originated out of Dubai, made a stop in Mecca, which is now experiencing a flu outbreak. On Twitter, he described looking out the window to see several ambulances, firetrucks and police vehicles converge on the plane.

It is not yet known what's caused the passengers to take unwell.

"Then we got the American officials check every one of us until we got out".

The reported illnesses come a day after at least 19 people aboard an Emirates flight from Dubai to NY were confirmed ill when the aircraft landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were also on the scene. Nine passengers underwent additional medical screening on site before being released, it added.

Eric Phillips, a spokesperson for de Blasio, tweeted that the flight stopped in Mecca, which is experiencing a flu outbreak, and "early indications point to that as a possibility".

Sykes and many other passengers were held on the plane for an additional two hours after the 13-hour flight landed in the U.S.

The emergency services are seen after the passengers were taken ill on a flight from NY to Dubai.

The Guyana native, 30, said his journey began in Saudi Arabia, and when he boarded the aircraft for his connecting flight from Dubai to NY, he sensed something was off.
