ASA843 Diversion To HNL

After a report of a blown tire after takeoff from SEA, Alaska Airlines decided to divert flight ASA843 to HNL, and deal with the problem instead of continuing to its original destination, KOA. The aircraft, N512AS (c/n 39043, l/n 2711) a 737-890, in the Dreamliner livery, stopped on the taxiway after exiting the runway, and was met by HNL ARFF. The passengers were off-loaded from the aircraft on the taxiway to Wiki-Wiki buses, taken to the terminal, and then continued to KOA on another Alaska aircraft as ASA843.
