The Chicago teacher said she started feeling sick on the plane and took a rapid test. A flight attended asked if she would stay in the restroom until the flight landed.

“It was hysterical. I was crying. I was in shock,” Foteio said. “I was nervous for my family who I had just eaten dinner with. I was nervous for the other people on the plane.”
