Flight from Stockton arrives on Oahu after 26 hour delay

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

An Allegiant Airlines flight from Stockton, California has finally arrived on Oahu after being delayed for 26 hours.

What was only the second ever Allegiant Airlines flight from Stockton to Hawaii was delayed on Sunday because of mechanical problems with the aircraft. It did not depart until Monday night.

Due to the fact that the airline only has sixteen Boeing 757 airplanes, with only four or five of them currently in service, there is not often a plane on standby in case a flight gets delayed.

In this case, another jet was eventually rerouted to Stockton.
