United Airlines passengers mysteriously fall ill on flight after disembarking cruise ship

Dozens of travelers mysteriously fell ill on a United Airlines flight to Texas after disembarking a cruise ship.
The flight from Vancouver, British Columbia, arrived in Houston at Bush Airport around 6:20 p.m. Friday with roughly 30 passengers feeling ill, according to ABC 13.
A travel group of 75 people had been on the cruise before boarding the flight. Of those, about 30 passengers reported feeling sick and having flu-like symptoms and nausea.

It was not immediately clear with what cruise line the passengers had been traveling. United did not return The Post’s request for comment.
Houston Fire Department emergency medical services met the plane as it landed and evaluated three passengers, though none required hospital treatment.
There were 163 passengers and six crew members aboard the flight, according to Fox 26.
In a statement, United said it would deep clean the plane before returning it to service.
“Several passengers who had been on the same cruise and did not feel well were on United Flight 1528 from Vancouver to Houston tonight,” the airline said.
