Is this in addition to the BA flight that landed in Miami yesterday due to a sick passenger on board?

Oh you're right I just caught it on FOX. This is the second time in two days that this happened in Miami. Did they say what the passengers symptoms were?

Miami Herald:

Not much right now, but this URL will update as more becomes available.

It is AeroMexico flight 420 from Merida with 45 passengers plus crew. Eleven passengers are reported sick.

Similar situation happened to me when I came from CUN last year. I ate a sandwich at the airport (which contained meat), and had to go straight to the hospital upon landing in MIA because I got such a horrible case of food poisoning. I wouldn't be surprised the meals these folks ate at the MID airport caused this.

WSVN Channel 7 has this story, similar to MAH4546's link above.

MIAMI (AP) -- Health authorities released nine passengers who were ill on a flight from Mexico to Miami International Airport on Tuesday.

Authorities had initially reported 11 sick passengers on the Aeromexico flight from Merida, Mexico, but a spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said nine people were complaining of gastrointestinal-type symptoms.

No one was hospitalized, CDC spokesman Von Roebuck said.

Aeromexico spokeswoman Gemma Liebanas said the airline is investigating.

"I think that the people who got sick, it must have been from something they ate at the airport, because no food is served on the flight from Merida to Miami at that hour of the day," Liebanas said.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson said the plane landed at about 1:10 p.m.
