Passengers can’t get enough of LA! Flight returns to airport three times.


207 Hawaiian Airlines passengers just couldn’t get enough of LA yesterday. They tried to fly out of LAX three times but kept coming back. The returns to the airports were all safety related precautions and were unrelated.

The Los Angeles International to Maui’s Airport flight turned back three times. The aircraft had already taken off twice, according to Alex Da Silva the airline’s senior manager. The flight was finally canceled.All of the turn backs were due to separate and unrelated faults with different systems, Mr Da Silva said.

“The 207 passengers on board were refunded for the flight and given US$100 credit for a future flight.

Hawaiian Airlines have released a statement today saying that… “Safety is our top priority, and we apologize for the inconvenience to all our guests who were aboard Flight 33 from Los Angeles International Airport to Maui’s Kahului Airport today.”

“We understand our guests’ disappointment and deeply regret their travel plans were disrupted.”

“These flights (over a large passage of water) have more rigorous safety requirements because of the greater distance between suitable airports,” the statement said.

“When there is an abnormality on an over-land flight it can, and often does, continue to its destination. Our aircraft have redundant systems, yet our standard is to respond to any indication of abnormalities with an abundance of caution.”
