This is not the news that you want to hear less than an hour into your vacation flight to Hawaii, but 280 poor passengers had a pretty miserable start to their holiday on Saturday.

The flight in question was an American Airlines flight, heading to Hawaii. The plane took off from Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix and was in the air for less than an hour before the pilot reported a mechanical issue.
