Sadly, one of the flight attendants fell ill and passed away during the transpac portion of the flight. Flight now continuing to JFK as HA8050. Aircraft is N831HA. Sending thoughts of aloha to the family and friends of the fallen flight attendant.

That is so sad....I have been monitoring the 51/50 flights recently and noticed that 51 left very late this morning/afternoon. Never imagined it would be due to something like this. Condolences to the family and crew mates.

Thank you for posting the update.
