HONOLULU —

Delta Air Lines Inc. says a passenger on one of its Honolulu-bound flights from Japan has died.

Delta spokeswoman Gina Laughlin says Flight 612 from Nagoya was about two hours from Honolulu when the man began experiencing some kind of medical emergency. She says flight attendants and nurses performed CPR but the passenger was unresponsive.

Paramedics met the flight when it landed Monday morning and took the man to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Laughlin says passenger privacy prevents the airline from revealing details about the man.

She says given the plane's location, going on to Hawaii was the shortest and only available option.
