To-Hawaii flight diverted to Los Angeles after dispute over blanket fee

When he was told that he would be charged for the blanket, he said he wanted corporate's phone number. The man became upset and said he shouldn't have to pay because it was cold, he said.

An unruly passenger prompted a Hawaiian Airlines flight from Las Vegas to divert to Los Angeles Wednesday morning.

It was determined that there was no criminal threat, according to Pedregon, and the customer caught another flight.

"It was just a business dispute", Pedregon said.

"You know, if I was a passenger on board that plane I would have paid the $12 dollars for him", he added. "I'm going to call the president".

A Hawaiian Airlines flight to sunny paradise turned cold when a 66-year-old passenger lost his temper over an in-flight blanket's hefty price tag.

Guardiola gets testy as Aguero saga rumbles on at Man City
Wagner remained upbeat about his side's trip to the Etihad following the two sides' goalless draw at the John Smith's Stadium. The Belgium worldwide has played only six times this season, and has been dogged by injury woes over the last two years.

The pilot was forced to divert to Los Angeles after the man's "threatening behavior". "Our crew felt it was necessary to divert to Los Angeles and deplane the passenger before beginning to fly over the Pacific Ocean", says the airline in a statement.

A flight attendant told Enriques that the male passenger in 42A had threatened the pilot, not a flight attendant, Enriques told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

But during daytime flights between the West Coast and Hawaii, blankets are complimentary only in first class and "extra comfort" cabins, she said.

Speaking with CBS Los Angeles, traveller Eileen Berstrom said the incident was "ridiculous".

On a United Airlines flight just last month, a pilot gave a freakish speech before takeoff - prompting dozens of concerned passengers to flee the plane.

Footage of the incident showed the man, wearing a hoodie and a baseball cap as he was escorted from the plane by two officers.
