Two American Airlines flights have arrived in Philadelphia with sick people on board. The plane has been quarantined, according to mayor's office. "Apparently there is over 100 people sick on the bottom floor, so happy I'm up's a double-decker plane 380".

Emirates said the 10 people taken to the hospital included seven crew members and three passengers.

In a statement, the CDC said: "Approximately 100 passengers, including some crew on the flight, complained of illness including cough, fever, and symptoms of gastrointestinal illness".

Multiple ambulances were dispatched to the airport.

Sykes and many other passengers were held on the plane for an additional two hours after the 13-hour flight landed in the US shortly after 9 a.m. ET.

The CDC said in a statement to The Independent: "CDC and Philadelphia public health officers worked with [medical and airport] officials to evaluate and test the ill passengers for influenza and other respiratory illnesses". A total of 521 people were aboard the A380 superjumbo plane.
