Shark attacks diver off Maui
KAHULUI, Maui (AP) — A diver has suffered severe cuts to his right ankle after being bitten by a tiger shark off Maui.
A Maui County Fire Department spokesman said the 30-year-old Kahului man and his partner were participating in a diving tournament Sunday when he felt something tug on his leg.
Lee Mainaga said the shark, believed to be about a 15-foot tiger shark, circled back after biting the man but he kept it away with a spear gun. The man bled profusely and his diving partner used their tag-line to create a tourniquet and pull him to shore. Mainaga said the man’s injury did not appear to be life-threatening.
Seats are added on Manila flight
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaiian Airlines is adding seat and cargo-carrying capacity to its route between Honolulu and Manila.
The airline says it’s now using 294-seat Airbus A330 airplanes on the route instead of the 264-seat Boeing 767 jets. It introduced the new planes to the route Sunday, and will continue using them through the end of March.
Hawaiian flies the route four days a week. The move adds 2,500 seats to the flights. It also expands cargo capacity by 25 percent.
