NEW YORK, Jan 6 (KUNA) -- An airplane belonging to the National carrier fleet of Kuwait Airways was bumped by another plane while on the runway ready for takeoff at JFK International Airport early Saturday. No injuries among passengers were reported.
All passengers were transferred to a hotel until further arrangements are taken.
An extreme winter storm is currently hitting the US' east coast, which led to the shutting down of airports and the cancellation of about 3,300 flights, mainly JFK. In a statement late Thursday, JFK officials said all international and local flights were suspended due to severe weather conditions. (end) asf.hb
