The August finale will certainly not be forgotten too quickly by passengers on a Hawaiian Airlines flight. On August 31, several passengers aboard a Boeing 767-300ER Hawaiian Airlines suffered respiratory problems due to an irritant gas.
The cabin staff made the decision to move the passengers to its tail, as far as the area where this gas was felt. The aircraft commander decided to continue flying to Kahului, where he landed safely.

Dozens of passengers and 3 flight attendants needed medical attention after landing in Hawaii. Following the research, it was found that this irritant gas was sprayed with a pepper spray. It seems that a young man brought a pepper spray on board, which accidentally set off about 3 hours after taking off. Company officials said Business Class passengers were the most affected.
