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

Dozens of vehicles surrounded the aircraft at JFK airport, with people on board reportedly coughing and feverish.

Experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were also on the scene.

The plane - a double-decker Airbus A380 - arrived in New York from Dubai this morning.

An airline statement said: "Emirates can confirm that about 10 passengers on #EK203 from Dubai to New York were taken ill.

and 9 refused medical attention.

They should not have been allowed off the plane. 

It does not say if they were Americans or 'tourists', but if they were 'tourists' ans refused, they should have been sent straight back to where they came from.

I was thinking "The Strain".

That plane landed at JFK too at the beginning of the book/show.

In the Strain?  It was a vampire making parasite.  Took over the world.  They launched nukes and caused a nuclear winter so they could be out all day, rounded up the surviving humans into blood farms, etc.   Ended when the protagonist detonates another nuke on the head vampire.

Depends on the mythology they’re using - some myths hold that all the stake through the hesrt does is effectively comatise them. You then need to decaptiate them.

Well, in The Strain the vampires were caused by worms in the blood stream: http://the-strain.wikia.com/wiki/Vampire_(Strigoi)

You could shoot them, like they tried in the book, but the results weren't that great because of the supernatural agility/strength and what not.

There was Vanilla Ice on the plane.

"The rapper chronicled the events on Twitter, writing, “I just landed from Dubai and now there is [sic] like tons of ambulances and fire trucks and police all over the place.” The accompanying video shows him peering out of an airplane window.

He added that he was not on the affected floor of the double-decker plane. “Apparently there is [sic] over 100 people sick on the bottom floor, so happy I’m up top.”"

Well that explains it.  He must have been practicing his singing and the people on the lower deck heard it.

This was one of my favorite stories to read this year.

The twitter responses were gold.
