Blanket-fee fight diverts Vegas plane

Blanket-fee fight diverts Vegas plane

An "unruly" passenger who allegedly threatened a flight attendant forced a Hawaiian Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Honolulu to divert this morning to Los Angeles, where airport police escorted the man from the plane.

The airline confirms HA7 departed Las Vegas at 8:44 a.m. local time and was about an hour into the flight, just past Los Angeles, when the crew was notified of an unruly passenger.

The passenger became furious after he passenger asked crew members for a blanket because he was chilly and they told him it would cost him.

Hawaiian Airlines Flight 7 was a few miles off the Southern California coast when an unidentified 66-year-old passenger requested a blanket and was told the cost would be $12, according to Los Angeles Airport Police.

The flight, which was reportedly delayed for four hours, landed in Los Angeles where the man was removed by police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. After being informed a blanket costs $12, the passenger "made a statement that he wanted to take somebody behind the woodshed over this, which prompted the flight crew to contact the captain who then in turn diverted the aircraft to LAX".

The man was found not guilty a second time , which Camp said contributed to his claim that he deserved a second chance. He argued since the 2014 trial he has taken courses in gender sensitivity and learned the law on sexual assault.

Another police spokesman said police were investigating whether more attackers had been involved but had no indication of that. Anti-terror police swooped on the station in western Germany today after reports of a "crazed man" on the loose.

As unusual as it would might seem, the pilots of an HA plane were forced to make an emergency stop at the Los Angeles airport after a passenger had a fit over the price of a blanket. About an hour later, the pilot announced that the plane was landing in Los Angeles but had to dump its fuel over the ocean first. He was not arrested.

"After questioning the parties involved, we determined no crime was committed, and there was no direct threat", Pedregon told CNN. Based on the information they are provided, the call has to be made immediately: "What is best for the crew and the passengers on board?"

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

Even so, the airline stuck by its decision to reroute the flight.
