A Hawaiian Airlines Airbus A321neo suffered damage to its door when a passenger boarding bridge collapsed at San Francisco International Airport.

The event was first reported by “A Fly Guy's Cabin Crew Lounge,” a social media page with over 1 million followers, mostly in the aviation industry. According to the post, the aircraft with registration number N216HA arrived in Maui on May 2, 2024 as Flight HA42 from Kahului Airport. The passenger boarding bridge, marked A1, collapsed after all passengers exited the aircraft and no injuries were reported.

However, the aircraft's L1 door, to which the passenger boarding bridge was attached, sustained significant damage, forcing the airline to cancel the aircraft's return flight, HA41, back to Kahului Airport the following day. Until recently, the plane was still at San Francisco airport and is likely being repaired.
