A passenger who caught a JetBlue flight from New York to Palm Beach had reportedly been told he tested positive for coronavirus moments before the plane took off.

Florida officials announced early on Thursday that a man had tested positive for the virus.

Passengers were forced to remain on Flight 253 for two additional hours as the aircraft stood on the tarmac instead of proceeding to gate C12 at the Palm Beach International Airport.

Another passenger on the plane claimed the man’s wife told him they had been told of the result before take off.

The flight landed at 8.53pm from John F Kennedy International Airport in New York City and passengers were allowed off the aircraft at 10.45pm, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue explained to WPTV.

‘The person across the way from me was taken to the back of the plane,’ passenger Scott Rodman said.

‘He was wearing masks and gloves. His wife was sitting in the same row as me and mentioned to others that he wasn’t feeling well.

‘She said he had gotten a phone call with his test results right before we had taken off, implying that he had a positive test but not actually saying it.’

    Jet Blue apparently wants to go bankrupt since it condones sick corona people to fly. Hope they go busted.
