Hawaii-bound flight diverted over blanket dispute

Hawaii-bound flight diverted over blanket disputeA flight from Las Vegas to Honolulu was diverted to Los Angeles on Wednesday after a passenger refused to pay $ 12 for a blanket and was accused of being unruly, police said. The incident unfolded after the Hawaiian Airlines flight took off from Las Vegas and the passenger — a 66-year-old man — requested a blanket as he was cold, Officer Rob Pedregon, a spokesman for the Los Angeles airport police, told AFP. When told he would have to fork out $ 12 for the blanket, the unidentified man got upset and demanded to speak to a corporate representative from the airline, Pedregon said.
