An Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration N557AS performing flight AS-837 from San Jose,CA to Honolulu,HI (USA) with 166 people on board, departed San Jose's runway 30R, when during the departure roll the right hand engine (CFM56) began to show vibrations of up to 5 units though all other engine indications were normal. The crew continued takeoff, consulted with dispatch and maintenance stating they were unable to cross the "pond" with that engine condition, the vibrations could be felt throughout the airframe as result of what they suspected was a bird strike though they weren't sure, stopped the climb at 5000 feet and decided to divert to Oakland,CA (USA) for a safe landing on runway 29 about 25 minutes after departure.

A replacement Boeing 737-800 registration N513A reached Honolulu with a delay of 100 minutes.
