Chrissy Teigen's Flight To Tokyo Diverted

Travel nightmare Eight hours in the air only to land at the original airport

Photo Chrissy Teigen with her husband, John Legend. How is this the better idea, you ask? "We are on ANA", Teigen said on Twitter". She said passengers were told someone had managed to board the ANA flight with a United Airlines ticket and added that police interviewed passengers who were sitting near the person.

Teigen however, made a decision to have fun with the cards she was dealt, interacting with fans on social media, and giving a hilarious take on an otherwise painful ordeal. A Twitter user named Raffy snapped a selfie with Teigen and Legend and posted it as his first-ever tweet. Four hours into the trip, over the Pacific Ocean, the airplane turned around and headed back to Los Angeles. Teigen continued her updates and they were eventually moved into a lounge with a TV. And the brunette beauty said she was feeling "forgiving", but had she been drinking, it could have gone very differently.

"At the time during the flight, the pilot in command was presented with information about the discrepancy in the passenger manifest".

In an apology to inconvenienced passengers, the airline says it takes pride in customer service and failed on this flight.

Liverpool back up to fourth after thrashing Swansea at Anfield
Salah is now the first player this season to have been involved in 20 league goals this season, with his fifth assist of the term. A match against free-scoring Liverpool at Anfield, however, will present a somewhat more hard prospect for the South Wales club.

The passenger reportedly had a boarding pass for a United flight, not an ANA flight, which makes this entire mix-up even more confounding, given the number times are an airline passenger's boarding pass and identification are scanned and scrutinized from the time they arrive at an airport to the time they're allowed on a plane.

"As part of the airline's security procedure, the pilot in command chose to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked", the airline said in a statement.

The Police Department said it was alerted and units were requested to stand by at the gate.
