All 13 passengers reporting to be sick have now been released for flying and chose to continue their onward connections.

Fiji Airways can confirm that these symptoms are isolated to a single group of passengers who stayed at the same resort in Fiji. 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 take off.

We have had no other reports of similar symptoms on any of our other services. As per our Health, Safety & Security standard operating procedures, our catering supplier in Nadi, Fiji, has sent samples of our 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. The origin is still under investigation.
