Chrissy Teigen Live-Tweets ‘Flight to Nowhere’ After Plane Turns Around

Fasten your seatbelts for this one! When Chrissy Teigen and John Legend boarded an All Nippon Airways flight at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday, December 26, they expected to land in Tokyo, where they planned to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Instead, eight hours later, they ended up right where their journey began.

“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. Why…why do we all gotta go back, I do not know,” the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, 32, tweeted. “So many questions and I have no answers. Either do they. This person must be mortified though.”

Initially, and understandably, Teigen seemed disgruntled. “Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere,” she wrote. “Like we were all just havin a great time up here flyin in the sky watching gran torino time to go home now.”

But not too long after, the Lip Sync Battle cohost made light of the situation. “I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this,” she tweeted. “The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo.”

The flight made a U-turn after the crew believed an unauthorized passenger had boarded. “I won’t be able to sleep until I know how this person figured out they were on the wrong flight. That’s all I ask. 150 people have been majorly inconvenienced, please, just tell me,” Teigen wrote. “Why do 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.”

Once the plane landed back at LAX, the Cravings cookbook author’s jokes continued. “They keep saying the person had a United ticket. We are on ANA. So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere,” she tweeted. “LAX —> LAX flight complete. Flight time, 8 hours and 20 minutes.”

Unfortunately, Teigen and Legend, 38, were unable to get more details about the bizarre debacle. “No one will spill anything,” she wrote. “I wish I had more for you guys. I wish I could be your snowden. *quits whatever my job is to devote my life to this likely very simple mistake.*”
