JetBlue cuts short flight after crew members become ill

Posted August 11

— A JetBlue Airways plane made an emergency landing in Buffalo after three crew members became ill on a cross-country flight.

Airport police tweeted Thursday that the crew members were taken to the hospital with dizziness, and a backup plane was called in. The flight was scheduled from Boston to San Diego.

JetBlue did not immediately respond Friday to requests for comment.

A passenger told Boston's WFXT-TV fumes could be smelled in the cabin and that he and others reported headaches. The passenger's videos show firefighters boarding the plane and also treating a flight attendant in the airport terminal.
