The origin of the 13 passengers who fell ill before boarding the Fiji Airways flight is still under investigations.

Fiji Airways’ FJ 810 flight was from Nadi to Los Angeles and it departed on June 15.

Fiji Airways has confirmed that these symptoms are isolated to a single group of passengers who stayed at the same resort in Fiji.

All 13 passengers that reported being sick were released to fly and then chose to continue onward connections.

Fiji Airways said: “We are aware that a number of the group were feeling ill prior to boarding and the remainder of the group became progressively more ill after takeoff.

“We have had no other reports of similar symptoms on any of our other services.”

Fiji Airways said their catering supplier in Nadi has sent samples of their on board food from the Los Angeles sector for testing.

The resort has been notified and requested to conduct their own internal investigation and tests.
