Earlier, an Emirates spokeswoman had said that only 10 passengers on the flight were affected by the sickness.
Reports suggest symptoms point to the flu.
An American Airlines spokeswoman says the plane wasn't quarantined.
Sykes and many other passengers were held on the plane for an additional two hours after the 13-hour flight landed in the US shortly after 9 a.m. ET.
In the video Vanilla Ice said, "Someone is sick on the plane, a couple people got ill on the plane and it must be pretty serious because that's a lot of people out there".
Twelve passengers from the two flights reported [a] sore throat and cough; none were identified with fever.
By the time the plane landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport, a Port Authority source said about 10 passengers had "taken ill". "Apparently there is over 100 people sick on the bottom floor, so happy I'm up top.it's a double-decker plane 380".
A rep for Vanilla Ice confirms to ET that he was on the plane, and was released with all the other passengers that did not exhibit any symptoms, and has already continued his travels from NY to home.
Ten people were taken to hospitals while the other nine declined treatment, said Raul Contreras, a spokesman for the New York City mayor's office. Health workers were evaluating about the passengers as the airplane sat on the tarmac of the airport, authorities said.
American Airlines did not immediately return Business Insider's request for comment.
