Emirates airline: Flu suspected after illness on Dubai flight

The CDC, the Philadelphia Health Department, and the Philadelphia Fire Department checked them out, the report said.

In a statement, Emirates confirmed that "about 10 passengers" on the Dubai to NY flight had become ill, adding that the appearance of health authorities at the scene was "a precaution".

The CDC worked with Philadelphia health officers, emergency responders and Customs and Border Patrol agents to evaluate the sick passengers for influenza and other respiratory illnesses, CDC spokesman Benjamin Haynes said.

Phillips said earlier the flight had stopped in Mecca, which is experiencing a flu outbreak. Another nine refused medical attention.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says about 100 of the 520 people aboard the plane had complained of illness, including cough and fever.

Emirates confirmed to People that the Centers for Disease Control staff and Port Authority officials from NY and New Jersey were on the scene when the plane arrived.

Ten people who were sickened on a Dubai-to-New York flight-from-hell tested positive for some form of flu or cold virus, city health officials revealed Thursday.

After spending about an hour or more on the tarmac, everyone on the flight filled out CDC paperwork, deplaned individually, and allowed medical personnel to take their temperatures.
