Large earthquake (magnitude 6.3) and associated power outage has closed Honolulu International Airport. Incoming flights are allowed to land, but nothing taking off at the moment.
Backup power at the airport has failed, and there’s no water or working toilets at the airport.

I’m curious-- for flights that are currently en-route, at what point is the decision made to turn around? Who makes that judgement call?
