However, a considerable damage was done to the Icelandair’s tail by the Korean Air’s wing, as a result of the collision
One passenger wrote on Twitter,”Pretty sure we scrapped another plane with our wing tip while taxiing.
“We have been told that we are going back to the gate due to a technical issue.
“But that was 15 minutes ago and we haven’t moved.”
Another person who was also on board said there was “no apparent danger”, adding that “nobody” was hurt.
