Delta, American Airlines Planes Collide on Tarmac at JFK, Lengthy Delays Ensue
Flights were delayed at JFK.

There were lengthy delays at John F. Kennedy airport on Tuesday evening after a Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL)  plane collided with the wing of a stationary American Airlines Group Inc. (AAL)  aircraft on the tarmac. 

Delta flight 2503 was Seattle bound while the American Airlines flight was headed to Dublin. 

"We had a big jolt, and he has a big scrape on his left wing. The Delta at our three o'clock, we are pretty sure his winglet ran into us as he passed behind us," the pilot said on the radio to ATC, Forbes reported.
