    Not a flight I would want to be on, at least not on the lower deck:

    SIXTY children have been hit by suspected food poisoning on a seven-hour flight from Dubai to London.

    The children, who belong to a choir called Only Kids Aloud, were returning home from a performance in Cape Town, South Africa when they began to suffer from vomiting and diarrhoea, the BBC reports. They had to share 17 toilets with other passengers on the Emirates Airlines Airbus A380.
    Upon the plane’s arrival at Heathrow Airport, paramedics took 11 of the children to hospital as a precaution, while the bug’s other victims were treated at the scene. Ground staff had scrambled four ambulances to meet the flight.

    If it's rota virus then the rest of the plane will be similarly affected shortly....

    Poor kids, I feel for them.

    Being ill on a plane is really not a nice experience.

    Rota is transferred by surface contact.
