A Southwest spokesperson confirmed the incident to ATW in an emailed statement: "Southwest flight 4182 was taxiing to the gate at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport when another airline's aircraft pushed back from another gate and made contact with our aircraft".
Two planes at Sky Harbor International Airport clipped wings Thursday night, according to airport officials.
Megan Whor was on the Southwest Airlines flight. A representative from American Airlines, which canceled 12 flights out of the airport, said John Wayne is expected to be impacted most by the weather because of its shorter runways and strong crosswinds in the area. The flight was heading from Phoenix to Denver and was cleared to push back from the gate.
