NEW YORK — Two commercial jets have been damaged in the aviation equivalent of a fender-bender at New York's Kennedy airport.

Nobody was reported injured in the accident, which happened at around 6:15 a.m. Saturday.

A JetBlue spokesman says a plane carrying around 150 passengers bound for West Palm Beach, Fla., had become temporarily disabled due to a problem with its tow bar and was sitting near a gate when it was bumped by an Air India aircraft.

The JetBlue plane suffered some damage to its rudder.

Airline spokesman Alex Headrick says the passengers were loaded on to another plane. The departure was delayed at least 3 ½ hours.

Messages left for Air India officials in New York weren't immediately returned.
