Chrissy Teigen has traveled all around the world, but managed to experience a "flying first" on Tuesday, after her plane to Tokyo was turned around four hours into the flight.
The 32-year-old model naturally live-tweeted the bizarre situation to her followers, explaining that she and husband John Legend boarded an ANA flight from Los Angeles International Airport, hoping to spend New Year's Eve in Japan. Four hours into their 11-hour flight, however, Teigen and the rest of the flight's passengers were informed that they'd be heading back to L.A. after it was determined that an unauthorized passenger had boarded the plane.
"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,” she wrote. “So many questions and I have no answers. Either do they. This person must be mortified though.”

“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," Teigen tweeted. "I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo."

Teigen continued to keep her followers updated throughout the ordeal, explaining that the passenger was able to somehow board the plane with a United ticket. "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.*"
no one will spill anything :( I wish I had more for you guys. I wish I could be your snowden
ANA, meanwhile, issued an apology for the situation over Twitter, writing, "We apologize to all of our passengers on Flight 175; we failed to deliver the customer service we strive for. Thank you all for your comments and allowing us to connect, learn and serve you better. We welcome ongoing feedback to understand how we can work to make this right."
While it looks like Teigen and Legend will actually be able to enjoy New Year's in Tokyo, they spent Christmas in the desert with their 1-year-old daughter, Luna. See more on the family in the video below.
