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.

The Frontier plane was headed to Denver, and the Southwest flight was arriving from Oklahoma City. There were 174 passengers on the plane.

Passengers on United Airlines flights traveling Friday or Saturday will be allowed to alter their flight plans without a charge in certain cities, said Maddie King, a spokeswoman for the airline.

There were no injuries reported from the collision. Frontier is cooperating with the NTSB and FAA in the investigation and is working with customers to accommodate them on other flights. But Wohr said the Southwest plane, after a wait of 90 minutes, taxied to Terminal 4 where the passengers got off at a regular gate. There were no Southwest customer or employee injuries.
