Oahu-bound flight with engine trouble diverted to San Francisco

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A Hawaiian Airlines flight from Oakland, Calif., landed in Honolulu after engine trouble diverted the plane to San Francisco.

The Honolulu-bound plane was about 20 minutes into the flight on Sunday morning when pilots noticed an indication of engine trouble. Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Ann Botticelli says the engine did not shut down and the pilot landed in San Francisco, which was the closest airport.

The 203 passengers were bused back to Oakland. Those in the Oakland area had the option of returning home while others were given hotel rooms. They were given meal vouchers and a $300 travel credit.

They departed on a 1:30 a.m. Monday flight and arrived in Honolulu at about 4 a.m.
