SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A Hawaiian Airlines flight from Mineta San Jose International Airport to Honolulu on Tuesday morning was forced to return to the Bay Area.

According to airport officials, Flight 43 originally took off at 9:15 a.m. Shortly after takeoff, the crew on board reported a mechanical issue.

Officials said the jet landed safely in San Jose around 10:15 a.m., after the jet burned off jet fuel.

No passengers were injured.

Officials have not specified the mechanical issue that forced the flight to divert back to San Jose.

It is unclear when the passengers would be flown to Hawaii.

  1. Must have been that Boeing jet that seems on the verge of breaking apart anytime now

  2. I was on an old Jet from San Jose to Maui on Hawaiian three weeks ago that was in need of retirement. The flight crew said well it is an OLD Airplane. Well, Hawaiian update the aircraft or lose customers.
