A Southwest Airlines jet backing up in preparation for takeoff at San Diego's Lindbergh Field bumped into another jet Thursday.

Airline spokeswoman Whitney Eichinger said no one was hurt when the two Boeing 737s touched.

She said a wing on one jet "tapped" the tail of the other jet, which was stationary at the time.

Both planes were taken out of service and customers were being moved to other aircraft. One flight was headed to Kansas City, Mo., and the other to San Francisco.
