American Airlines is investigating a mystery illness on a transatlantic airliner. At least six people became sick Wednesday on Flight 109 from London to Los Angeles.

Passengers say it began as a routine 10-hour flight, reports CBS News correspondent Kris Van Cleave. Then, about two and a half hours after takeoff, the crew turned on the cabin lights and asked if there was a doctor on board.
