16 American Airlines passengers were hospitalized after arriving in to Boston Logan International Airport yesterday morning. The passengers consisted of a school group coming back from Ecuador, with a layover in Miami. It’s unclear what caused their illness, but it’s likely it was related to while they were in Ecuador vs. on the flight itself.
