HONOLULU — The Federal Aviation Administration says a United Airlines flight bound for San Francisco from Honolulu turned around because of an unspecified electrical problem.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said Monday the Boeing 737 airplane landed without incident.

The redeye flight took off from Hawaii on Sunday night just before midnight and was scheduled to land in San Francisco on Monday morning.

Gregor says the FAA is working with United to determine the cause of the problem.

United Airlines spokeswoman Mary Clark says the flight was cancelled because of flight time restrictions on its flight attendants.

Clark says it's not immediately clear whether the plane has returned to service.

Clark says the passengers were accommodated on other airlines.
