Unruly passenger causes Hawaiian Airlines flight lock-down and diversion

A Hawaiian Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Honolulu was diverted Wednesday after a passenger got upset over being charged for a blanket, police said.

"Diverting a flight is clearly not our first choice, but our crew felt it was necessary in this case to divert to Los Angeles and deplane the passenger before beginning to fly over the Pacific Ocean", Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Alison Croyle told CNN affiliate KCAL.

A flight attendant announced to passengers that the plane had to divert "due to operational reasons" and that law enforcement officers would be boarding the plane upon landing at LAX.

The plane landed safely at LAX at about 10:20 a.m., and the 66-year-old man was interviewed by Los Angeles Airport police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents but was released without being arrested, said Los Angeles Airport police officer Rob Pedregon.

UCL Match Report: Napoli v Real Madrid 07 March 2017
Napoli now trail in the round of 16 tie with the Spanish giants after falling to a 3-1 victory in the first leg at the Bernabeu. That suggests the team work harder when one, two or all of the three forwards are out and that allegation is nothing new.

Local media reports that, around an hour into the Hawaiian Airlines flight, there was a disagreement between a passenger and the flight crew over the $12 (€11.30) charge for a blanket.

Two uniformed airport officers escorted the passenger off the plan at 10:46 am. He was not arrested.

The passenger was not a threat, Pedregon said, joking that there was "no woodshed on board".

"(The crew) took offense to the statement that he made.

Supreme Court Avoids Ruling On Gavin Grimm's Case Regarding Transgender Rights
Grimm is expected to address the Supreme Court's decision at noon today in a Facebook Live chat with the Human Rights Campaign. When Trump scrapped the guidance, the Supreme Court asked both sides for new filings on how the case should proceed.

Hawaiian Airlines spokesman Alex Da Silva said: "The decision to divert is based on safety".

"He looked like he was drunk". Bianca Moors said she understood that the crew was just trying to stay safe. "I'm going to call the president". "We ended up losing $600".

Flight 7 eventually left LAX and arrived in Honolulu almost four hours behind schedule.
