A Hawaiian Airlines flight to Los Angeles returned to Honolulu due to two "unruly passengers" whose mid-air squabble forced pilots to turn back two hours into the trip.
The aircraft departed from Honolulu at 2:50 p.m. on Wednesday. Passengers said one man apparently bumped another, touching off the shouting match.
"Some dude in another dude's face," said passenger Justin Moore-Brown. "Had his finger all up in his face, telling him to f--- off."

"Safety is our priority, and we apologize to our guests for the inconvenience," Hawaiian Airlines said in a statement.
The flight then departed to Los Angeles at 8 p.m.
