Man removed from flight after argument over blanket price

Croyle said the airline offers complimentary blankets in all cabins on global flights and on certain red-eye flights.

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.

The flight was from Las Vegas in Nevada to Hawaii but was diverted to Los Angeles airport because of the passenger's antics.

No crime had been committed, police added. The man insisted he should not have to pay because it was cold on the plane.

Germany rejects Turkish charges, hits out over press freedom
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim addressed Turkish voters at a campaign rally in the Rhineland town of Oberhausen last week. They reportedly received a telephone call from an unknown person who said there was a bomb in the town hall.

The 66-year-old man, who was not identified, complained of being cold shortly after the Honolulu-bound flight took off from Las Vegas at 8:45 a.m., the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and the Los Angeles Times reported.

The man voluntarily abandoned his flight and caught another one, he said. "I'm going to call the president", Enriques said.

Our flight crews are responsible for the safety and comfort of all passengers on board our flights and the Captain in charge of the aircraft is entrusted with determining when it's best to deplane an anxious or unruly passenger. His name was not released.

Police met the man when the plane landed at 10:20 in the morning yesterday.

The German government will also talk about both Egypt and Tunisia taking back asylum-seekers who have been rejected in Germany. The trip is part of a larger diplomatic push by Merkel, who previous year visited Mali, Niger and Ethiopia.

The flight departed Los Angeles a few hours later.

"I thought it was ridiculous", witness Eileen Bernstrom told the news station.

Data from the Flight Radar 24 website shows that the diverted flight later continued on to Honolulu following its unscheduled LA stop.

She said: "First of all, it costs $12,000 for them to land here, and it's a $12 blanket".
