Jetliners from the United Arab Emirates' two main airlines avoided a possible mid-air collision after they got too close to each other over the Indian Ocean earlier this week.The incident happened Sunday as passenger planes from Dubai-based Emirates and Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways were traveling in opposite directions between the Gulf federation and the island nation of Seychelles.Both it and Etihad denied that passenger safety was compromised.Emirates and Etihad have both grown rapidly in recent years, enticing long-haul transit passengers through their Gulf hubs aboard relatively young aircraft.
