Flight to Hawaii from Las Vegas diverted because of passenger

A passenger who felt chilly on a Hawaiian Airlines flight found himself booted off the plane after he verbally abused flight crew over the cost of a blanket.

"I would like to take someone behind the woodshed for this", the man allegedly said while speaking to company representatives over the phone.

A Hawaiian Airlines flight going from Las Vegas, Nevada, to Honolulu, Hawaii, was diverted to Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday after a passenger complained about having to pay for a blanket.

"We had an unruly passenger on board, so the pilot elected to divert to LAX".

"After questioning the parties involved, we determined no crime was committed, and there was no direct threat", Authorities told CNN.

The man managed to catch another flight, he said.

HIs opponent, Overeem, has had his fair share of history with performance enhancing drugs. As a result, the NSAC handed down a nine-month suspension to the Dutch fighter.

So he asked to speak with the airline's corporate office.

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.

But, she said, "I think it's important to put ourselves in the position of the captain, who is in the cockpit about to begin a five-hour flight over the Pacific, when he or she is informed of an issue in the back of the plane".

The man was reportedly allowed to fly to Hawaii with another airline on a later flight.

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.

"I thought it was ridiculous", passenger Eileen Berstrom told CBS Los Angeles. The man was escorted off the plane.
