Chrissy Teigen Live-Tweets "Flight to Nowhere" After Tokyo-Bound Plane Returns to LAX

Teigen, who was on board with husband John Legend, documented the fallout caused by an All Nippon Airways passenger mix-up on her social media.

Several confused Tokyo-bound passengers turned to Chrissy Teigen's social media accounts for answers after they landed back in Los Angeles after spending eight hours in the air Wednesday.

After departing LAX on Tuesday morning, an All Nippon Airways plane made an unexplained U-turn back to Los Angeles, citing a mix-up with a passenger on board.

"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," Teigen, who was aboard with husband John Legend, wrote around 8:30 p.m. PT. "Why...why do we all gotta go back, I do not know."

She then added, "After all this, I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere."

The ANA flight, NH175, landed back at LAX at 7:33 p.m. local time.

The model and TV personality continued to post videos and more than two dozen tweets updating her 9 million-plus Twitter followers on the "cover-up" as she and Legend continued to request answers from the airline as they spent the night in the airport. She said each passenger was interviewed for 20 minutes when deplaning, and that they were told one passenger had a United ticket instead of one for ANA.

"Police were interviewing all the people seated around the mystery person once we got off the plane," she wrote, calling the incident suspicious. In another tweet, she said, "No one will answer my questions. I told them I won’t tell anybody but I think they know what’s happening here on the Twitter."

She added, "Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake? Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask? We all have the same questions."

It wasn't until early Wednesday morning that Teigen wrote on Twitter that she and Legend had boarded a new flight and were taking off.

"During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot," ANA said in a statement released early Wednesday. "As part of the airline’s security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked."

The airline added that it is researching the situation to determine how the passenger boarded the flight.

"ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience," the statement continued. "We take great pride providing exemplary customer service, and on this flight we failed to do so." Another apology followed Wednesday afternoon.

The original flight was rescheduled and expected to depart Thursday at 2 a.m. PT, the airline said, but it appears Teigen and Legend boarded another flight.
