A Spirit Airlines Airbus A320-200N, registration N923NK performing flight NK-1444 from Atlanta,GA to Boston,MA (USA), had landed on Boston's runway 22L and was taxiing towards the terminal being instructed to hold short of runway 22R.

An American Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration N946AN performing flight AA-1457 from Boston,MA to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA), had been cleared from takeoff from runway 22R when about a minute later tower cancelled their takeoff clearance and subsequently called Spirit Airlines NK-1444 instructing them to expedite their runway crossing of runway 22R and apologized to American mentioning "that Spirit".

The FAA reported the controller cancelled takeoff clearance as precaution after the Spirit Airlines had come too close to the hold short line.

The American Boeing returned to the apron and was able to depart again about 2:10 hours later reaching Chicago with a delay of 3 hours.
