NEW YORK -- The left wing of a plane backing out of a gate at John F. Kennedy International Airport clipped the tail of another plane on the taxiway Saturday afternoon, but no one was injured, authorities said.
The Air China flight had 215 passengers on board and 23 crew members and was destined for Beijing when its wing clipped the other plane, said Tony Ciavolella, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which manages the airports.
The Delta flight was empty because the plane had not boarded yet, said Delta spokeswoman Katie Connell.
Both planes were taken out of service to repair damage. The Air China flight was rescheduled with another plane for Sunday. The Delta passengers took another plane an hour after their originally scheduled flight to Nice, France, Connell said.
The Federal Aviation Administration was investigating the incident. No other flights at JFK were affected.
