A Hawaiian Airlines flight turned around this afternoon while en route to Oakland International Airport.

Flight HA48 departed Honolulu (HNL) at 12:25 p.m. 

Shortly after takeoff, a cockpit light indicated a discrepancy with an internal monitoring system.

Out of an abundance of caution, the pilot returned the aircraft to HNL so the system could be checked and reset.

The Airbus A321neo aircraft, carrying 183 passengers and seven crew, landed without incident at 1:47 p.m.

A new departure time is being determined.
