Chrissy Teigen Live-Tweets 'Flight to Nowhere' After Shocking Discovery on Plane
Dec 30 2017
Speculating that the passenger responsible must be "mortified", Teigen, who was with her husband, the singer John Legend, posted several tongue-in-cheek updates as they continued their "flight to nowhere".
One brother had a ticket on All Nippon Airways and the other had a ticket on a United Airlines flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News. "Why.why do we all gotta go back, I do not know".
Per The Guardian, an unidentified "rogue passenger" somehow boarded the wrong plane-a la Kevin McCallister in Home Alone 2: Lost In New York-and no one noticed until everyone was hovering somewhere over the North Pacific.
The airline said the turnaround was a required part of security procedures when someone gets on the wrong flight.
ANA said it was trying to determine how the passenger boarded the wrong flight.
"A flying first for me: 4 hours into an 11 hour flight and we are turning around because we have a passenger who isn't supposed to be on this plane".
As a result of the diversion, passengers spent 8 hours on board the flight to nowhere. An unauthorized passenger on board caused the major inconvenience - and it's all kind of a long story that Chrissy was happy to share with fans in great detail while she live blogged the whole insane incident on Twitter.
She later slammed the airline's decision to turn around.
"Why did we all get punished for this one person's mistake? We are on ANA", Teigen tweeted.

She said no charges were filed, but the investigation is ongoing.
"ANA is researching the situation now to determine how the passenger boarded the flight".
In a follow-up statement, the airline repeated its apologies, saying it "failed to deliver the customer service we strive for and passengers expect from us".
