Plane returns to LA because passenger was on wrong flight

The pair were travelling to Tokyo from Los Angeles when their flight was ordered to turn back after four hours of travelling. "Why...why do we all gotta go back, I do not know", she wrote in the first of her updates on the situation.

After having her flight rescheduled, Teigen was allowed to hang in an airline lounge, where she was greeted with a trifecta of materials meant to "keep her quiet": water, ramen, and The Real Housewives.

One person certainly lucked out in this situation. Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask?

"Why did we all get punished for this one person's mistake?"

The LA to Tokyo plane carrying Chrissy Teigen and singer husband John Legend was turned around halfway with a wrong passenger onboard. "During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot", the airline told CNBC in a statement.

All Nippon Airways apologized to its passengers saying it “failed to deliver the customer service we strive for.”

The pilot of Flight 175 chose to return to the originating airport as part of the airline's security procedures, ANA said in statements that apologized to passengers but supported the decision.

Roughly five hours after the whole mess started, Teigen said they were boarding a new plane. They seemed resigned to their fate.

"We apologize to all of our passengers on Flight 175; we failed to deliver the customer service we strive for", the airline tweeted Wednesday.

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. ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience.
