"He made a statement that he wanted to take someone behind the woodshed over there, which prompted the flight crew and the captain who, in turn, diverted the aircraft to LAX", Rob Pedregon of the Los Angeles Airport Police said. "Maybe they felt uncomfortable with it, which is well within their rights to divert the plane and refuse service", Pedregon said.

Hawaiian Airlines flight #7 was a few miles off the Southern California coast when a 66-year-old passenger requested a blanket and was told the cost would be $12, according to Los Angeles Airport police.

Da Silva said the plane will be refueled and will land in Honolulu later today, but he did not know exactly when. The investigation showed no credible threats were made and no laws were broken.

Even so, the airline stuck by its decision to reroute the flight.

At Las Vegas' McCarren International Airport, Enriques said he saw Hawaiian Airlines personnel speaking to the passenger, who appeared to be in his late 60s or early 70s and had white hair.

The flight left Las Vegas at 8:45 a.m. today.

An HA Plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Los Angeles after passenger threatened staff member over renting a blanket. The flight attendant said the cabin was "on secured lock-down".

As odd as it would might seem, the pilots of an HA plane were forced to make an emergency stop at the Los Angeles airport after a passenger had a fit over the price of a blanket.

The remaining passengers remained at LAX this morning and were not immediately told what would happen next.

Flight 7 eventually left LAX and arrived in Honolulu almost four hours behind schedule.
