The people on board were greeted by dozens of ambulances and other emergency vehicles, with medical staff ready to assess the situation. He said the sick people were on what he called the "bottom floor".

Emirates airline said they included seven crew members and three passengers.

The plane wasn't quarantined, according to the report.

The exact ailment has not been confirmed, but the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a statement that symptoms include fever and coughing.

Medical staff from the CDC had all passengers fill out health care questionnaires on board, passenger Srinivasan Rao said.

An Emirates superjumbo in NY has been met by ambulances, police and disease control experts after passengers became unwell.

The BBC reported that food poisoning is suspected as a cause.

Phillips was among the first to suggest that the patients' symptoms were "pointing to the flu".

Passengers had gotten off their planes and were in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection zone at the airport when they began to complain of feeling sick.

Airport officials held the plane for several hours so that the ill passengers could be attended by local health authorities.

Officials from the Port Authority Police Department and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were on scene, according to news station WNBC, but did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
