According to The Aviation Herald, there was an incident between Air France and ITA Airways at JFK.
The incident happened at New York's JFK Airport. It involves.
The incident was first reported when an Air France pilot contacted JFK ground controllers and said there was an Alitalia plane behind them that hit their plane.
There was confusion between the Air France pilot and controllers because the plane was being referred to as "Alitalia", and there was also confusion over where the Air France plane was parked.
The JFK tower tells the Air France pilot to stop the takeoff from Alitalia because they might have damaged the plane. At this point JFK tower contacts the ITA pilots, saying that another aircraft on the ground currently, Air France, said that you hit them or something, did you experience any damage to the aircraft? The pilot of the ITA replied with a negative word.
Below, you can listen to the entire communication.
The Air France plane is at JFK six days later. The flights to Rome were on time. The plane was on the ground in Rome for a couple of days.
A lot of things make this incident confusing.
There was a ground collision at JFK. The pilots of the ITA decided to continue their flight even though they were aware of the situation. It is difficult to know what to think about this.
In the past few months, there have been dramas for Air France and ITA on JFK routes, with pilots falling asleep on a New York to Rome flight, and Air France pilots losing control of the plane on a New York to Paris flight.
