LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FBI says a telephone bomb threat forced the delay of a Hawaiian Airlines flight out of Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Times reports Flight 9 was scheduled to leave Los Angeles International Airport for Honolulu at 6 p.m. Thursday.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says the Boeing 767 was thoroughly searched and passengers and luggage were re-screened. Authorities determined there was no credible threat and the flight took off after 8 p.m.

The Times says there were 225 people aboard the plane.

The incident is under investigation.
