An EgyptAir spokesperson said: “The Flight MS 986, a Boeing 777, was moving on Taxiway Kilo at the airport when its right wing slightly touched the left wing of Virgin Atlantic Airlines Flight 4C, an Airbus A333.

The plane was returned to Terminal 4 and passengers are being hosted at a neighboring hotel until they board the next flight to Cairo tonight from JFK Airport.”
