HONOLULU (KHON2) — An international airplane flight from Tokyo flying to Los Angeles landed in Honolulu instead.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, United Airlines Flight 33, a Boeing 787, landed safely at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, on Tuesday, June 14, at around 6:45 a.m. after the crew reported a passenger disturbance.
United Airlines said law enforcement officers met the aircraft at the gate and customers deplaned normally.
The Hawaii Department of Transportation said a 67-year-old man was treated for a medical issue.
“Our teams are making arrangements to get customers to their final destinations as quickly as possible,” said a UA spokesperson.
As a courtesy gesture, UA has offered the passengers on that plane hotel accommodations and help with rebooking their final destinations. UA scheduled a new flight to depart on Wednesday morning.
The Hawaii Department of Public Safety said because the flight was an international flight, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has jurisdiction.
