Chrissy Teigen and John Legend in eight-hour 'flight to nowhere' debacle

Passengers, including singer John Legend and his wife, model and TV presenter Chrissy Teigen, were informed of the mix-up and of the plane's return to LA when it had already been in the air for four hours.

Law enforcement sources told ABC News the brothers cleared security at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday with legit tickets, but were booked on separate flights to Tokyo. "Why... why do we all gotta go back, I do not know", she tweeted.

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 flight was then required to return to Los Angeles to comply with the airline's security procedure.

After tweeting that the eight hour, 20 minute flight had reached LAX, there was a further delay while police carried out checks.

All Nippon Airways said in a statement that the pilot flew the plane back to the Los Angeles airport after the cabin crew discovered that one of the passengers was not supposed to be there.

The flight made an unscheduled U-turn four hours into the 11-and-a-half-hour journey.

Not Released
All Nippon Airways apologized to its passengers saying it “failed to deliver the customer service we strive for.”

Eventually, Teigen and Legend tweeted in the safety of an airline lounge.

As a result of the diversion, passengers spent 8 hours on board the flight to nowhere. Instead of being incensed, the very pregnant Teigen live-tweeted the situation with her trademark good humor.

She later slammed the airline's decision to turn around.

All Nippon Airways apologised to affected passengers in a brief statement on Twitter on Wednesday, which read: "We apologize to all of our passengers on Flight 175; we failed to deliver the customer service we strive for".

Mystery surrounds how the passenger had been allowed to board the wrong plane, with reports saying he or she had a ticket for a different airline. "We are on ANA", Teigen said on Twitter".

"Why did we all get punished for this one person's mistake?" How is this the better idea, you ask?
