The National Transportation Safety Board on Monday is expected to determine whether it will investigate a bumping incident involving two airliners on the tarmac Sunday at Kennedy Airport, officials said.
The incident involved Delta Connection Flight 6087, operated by Indianapolis-based Chautauqua Airlines, and Royal Jordanian Airlines Flight 261.
A call to Royal Jordanian was not returned. A spokesman for Republic Airways, which operates Chautauqua, told The Associated Press its aircraft was stopped on the tarmac when it was bumped from behind by the other airliner.
The spokesman said the nose of the Royal Jordanian plane hit the Chautauqua tail.
There were 44 passengers and three crew aboard the Chautauqua flight, which had just arrived from Charleston, S.C. There were 159 passengers aboard the Royal Jordanian flight, which had just arrived from Amman, Jordan.
The incident occurred just after 7 p.m., officials said. No injuries were reported.
NTSB spokesman Peter Knudson said Sunday night that the agency was waiting on an "assessment" of the incident to determine whether further investigation was necessary.
He said that decision would likely be made Monday.
A similar accident occurred in May 2012 between two Delta jetliners at Kennedy Airport.
In that case, the wingtip of a Delta Boeing 767 being towed between terminals clipped a horizontal stabilizer on a second plane. Both aircraft suffered minor damage -- and officials said one flight was delayed for several hours.
No one was injured.
In April 2011 an Air France Aubus A380 clipped a Delta regional jet on the tarmac.
The A380, which was carrying 485 passengers and a crew of 25, had no reported injuries. There were no injuries reported on the Comair / Delta Bombardier CRJ 701, which carried 62 passengers and four crew.
The NTSB determined both planes involved in that incident suffered "substantial" damage.
