An airliner slowly backing up in preparation for takeoff at Lindbergh Field bumped into another passenger jet this afternoon, causing no injuries but delaying a pair of flights, an airport spokesman said.
A wing on one of the Southwest Airlines Boeing 737s "tapped" the back end of the other one -- which was stationary at the time -- outside Lindbergh's Terminal One about 3:50 p.m., public information officer Steve Shultz said.
Airline officials decided to hold off on moving the jetliners until the damage could be evaluated, according to Schultz.
It was not immediately clear how long the two affected flights -- one to San Francisco, the other to Kansas City -- would be delayed.
