At Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), an American Airlines Boeing 737-800 NextGeneration (NG) and a Spirit Airlines Airbus A320neo were involved in a near-miss.

The Spirit Airlines Airbus A320neo, came too close to the runway while landing at BOS, forcing the American Airlines Boeing 737-800NG to abort its takeoff and return to the gate.

The Boeing 737NG’s takeoff clearance was canceled by the air traffic controller just as it was rolling down the airport’s runway, according to the United States (US) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which spoke to CBS News.

On August 14, 2023, at 12:46 p.m. local time (UTC +4), the Spirit Airlines A320neo was landing at BOS on a flight from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), while the American Airlines Boeing 737-800NG was about to depart for Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD).

The American Airlines narrow-body aircraft was forced to return to the gate and left for ORD several hours later. It eventually landed at ORD more than two hours after its scheduled arrival time, at 4:57 pm local time (UTC +5).

A passenger told the Chicago Tribune that “you definitely felt anxiety in the air”, adding that “this is something I hope never to experience again”. The outlet also said the FAA will investigate the incident.

At the time of publication, the incident was not listed in the preliminary report data of the FAA’s Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) system.
