Chrissy Teigen live-tweets flight from hell
SUPERMODEL Chrissy Teigen live-tweeted her disastrous experience aboard a Tokyo-bound jet that made a U-turn about four hours into the flight due to an "unauthorised person" on the plane.
Teigen, 32, who was on the flight with her husband, crooner John Legend, reported that the All Nippon Airways jet turned around halfway into the flight because "we have a passenger who isn't supposed to be on this plane", Fox News reported.
"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 tweeted.
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— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 27, 2017
Teigen, who called the ordeal "a flight to nowhere," tweeted that the unauthorised passenger "must be so mortified".
"This person is so lucky that we will all have to deplane. Imagine having to walk off alone," the model tweeted. "The shame!"
Teigen later tweeted that the person who boarded the plane, with 226 passengers on-board, was supposed to be on a United flight.
Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere. Like we were all just havin a great time up here flyin in the sky watching gran torino time to go home now— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 27, 2017
Police interviewed the passengers for information on the mysterious traveller, and Teigen jokingly apologised to her 9.2 million followers for not being able to provide officers with details.
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— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 27, 2017
"No one will spill anything :( I wish I had more for you guys. I wish I could be your Snowden," Teigen tweeted.
The model was sure to include videos and retweets from fans who were following along. Teigen reported she was on the flight for eight hours and 20 minutes and ended up back to where it all began at Los Angeles International Airport.

Despite the travel hassle, Teigen happily tweeted early on Wednesday that her flight was "taking off!!!" but hoped the menu would not be the same.

Airport police reported that the "mix-up" was resolved and the flight was rescheduled.
Fox News' request for a comment from the airline was not immediately answered.
