Two JetBlue planes collided on the tarmac at Boston’s Logan International Airport on Thursday morning, disrupting the travel plans of all the passengers onboard.

Flight 777’s left winglet struck the right horizontal stabilizer of Flight 551 around 6:40 a.m. while on the deicing pad, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

One passenger, Dave Souter, was headed to Las Vegas to work at an event for the Super Bowl when the incident happened after the aircraft pulled away from the gate, he told Boston 25 News.

The other plane was headed to Orlando, Fla.

“An eventful morning for us passengers, but really grateful for the in-flight JetBlue crew who patiently answered passengers’ questions and constantly provided updates to us on board,” Casey Cunningham shared on X.
