An easyJet plane flying to Tel Aviv from London was forced to return to the airport Friday morning after a number of flight attendants reported feeling unwell.

Shortly after takeoff, flight EZY2083 u-turned back to Luton Airport where paramedics and emergency response teams assessed the cabin crew members who were experiencing difficulty breathing.

An easyJet spokesperson told local media that the Tel Aviv-bound flight was recalled as a “precautionary measure.”

The discount airliner said the flight was rescheduled to takeoff Saturday and that all passengers were being provided with meals and overnight accommodation.

EasyJet launched direct flights between Luton and Tel Aviv in 2009.
