On 10 April, an American Airlines Airbus A321 (N114NN) departed New York JFK’s runway 31L. During take-off roll, however, the aircraft veered left causing the left wing tip to collide with a runway sign. The pilots stopped the climb at 20,000 feet and decided to return to JFK airport for a safe landing 27 minutes after departure. 

The airline scheduled another Airbus A321 to bring the 101 passengers to Los Angeles, albeit with a delay of 13 hours. The belated aircraft is still on the ground at JFK airport at moment of writing.
