In an another apparently unrelated health scare, passengers on four Southwest Airlines flights in Texas may have been exposed to measles in the last 16 days.

Images of the double-decker A380 aircraft isolated on the tarmac at John F. Kennedy International Airport were broadcast by USA media, which reported that the plane had been quarantined.

The CDC, Philadelphia Health Department and the Philadelphia Fire Department personnel performed medical evaluations on the passengers.

Eric Phillips, a spokesperson for de Blasio, tweeted that the flight stopped in Mecca, which is experiencing a flu outbreak, and "early indications point to that as a possibility".

Dozens of vehicles surrounded the aircraft at JFK airport, with local media reporting that people were coughing and had high temperatures.

A commercial jet from Dubai prompted a large-scale emergency response at New York's Kennedy Airport on Wednesday after a pilot reported that several passengers and crew members were complaining about having a flu-like illness.

There were 521 passengers on board flight EK203, the CDC said. "None of the passengers are severely ill, and they will be released and informed of test results in 24 hours", Haynes said.

He said that he had seen "no evidence of illness", but added that Flight 203 has "two levels".

The airline and the New York City mayor's office said 19 people were confirmed ill.

By around noon ET, 432 passengers had been cleared and allowed to go to the customs area, according to Phillips. A total of three passengers and seven crew members were transferred to a hospital.

Larry Coben, a passenger on the plane, posted pictures on Twitter of unaffected passengers being checked as they disembarked.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says none of the 12 passengers coming to Philadelphia on American Airlines flights from Paris and Munich exhibited fevers.
