HONOLULU (KHON2) – A Hawaiian Airlines from Honolulu to Oakland turned around nearly two hours into the flight after a cockpit light indicated a possible fault in one of the two engines.
According to a Hawaiian Airlines spokesperson, out of an abundance of caution, the pilot turned off the engine and returned the Airbus A321neo to Honolulu to have the aircraft inspected.
Flight-48 landed at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport at 3:40p.m. Sunday.
We’re told the seven crewmembers and 186 passengers were not injured.
The spokesperson said the airlines changed the aircraft to an Airbus A330 and the flight to Oakland is scheduled to depart from Honolulu at 9:45p.m. Sunday night.
