So I just landed in New York coming back from Dubai and now I'm stuck on the runway with like 1000 police, ambulances, fire trucks, this is crazy ... This is crazy. Apparently there is over 100 people sick on the bottom floor, so happy I'm up top, it's a double-decker plane 380 (sic)''
The jumbo aircraft was said to have 500 people on board and landed at 9.10am local time.
A spokesperson for the airline later confirmed they were taking the required measures to control the situation.
They said: ''All passengers were screened by the local health authorities prior to disembarkation and three passengers and seven crew were transferred to the hospital for further medical care and evaluation.
