Flight Diverted After Passenger Complains About $12 Blanket

Flight Diverted After Passenger Complains About $12 Blanket

Los Angeles Airport police told media that the plane was diverted after a 66-year-old man got upset after asking for a blanket and being told it would cost $12.

Although there was no physical altercation, Hawaiian Airlines thought it best to not take any chances.

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.

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

Witnesses said the man argued that because the flight was so cold, he should be allowed to have the blanket for free.

The pilot was forced to divert to Los Angeles after the man's "threatening behavior".

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. "I'm going to call the president".

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

In-flight dust-ups are hardly uncommon - but they have increasingly centered on politics, not price tags.

Late previous year, Delta banned a passenger after he went on a pro-Trump rant.

That same month, prosecutors said a traveler attacked a Muslim airline employee, warning her that Trump "will get rid of all of you".

George Enriques, a Maui-bound passenger aboard Hawaiian Airlines flight 7, was sitting across the aisle from the elderly, male passenger in seat 42A who was escorted off of the plane. "Racists aren't welcome in America!"
