A JetBlue aircraft was clipped by another plane on the tarmac at John F. Kennedy International Airport Saturday morning.
       
According to a JetBlue spokesman, the Airbus 320 was at the gate waiting for a tow bar just after 6 a.m., when an Air India jet taxied into the area and clipped the the JetBlue plane's rudder, causing some damage.

None of the 150 passengers on board the JetBlue plane were hurt in the accident, the spokesman said. It was unclear whether there were any passengers on board the Air India plane.
       
Passengers on the JetBlue plane, which had been heading to Florida, were switched onto a new plane to continue their trip.

The Airbus was taken out of service and maintenance crews were evaluating the damage.
