Tokyo flight turns back after passenger 'boards with wrong ticket'

Tokyo flight turns back after passenger 'boards with wrong ticket'

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's festive getaway from Los Angeles to Tokyo, Japan got off to an abysmal start after the first aircraft they boarded had to be turned around, meaning they spent eight hours travelling from LAX back to LAX airport. "As part of the airline's security procedure, the pilot in command chose to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked", All Nippon Airways said in a statement.

Model Christine Teigen, who was on board the flight, tweeted about the experience, saying "150 people have been majorly inconvenienced". She wondered on Twitter why the plane was turning around hours into the 11-hour flight. 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.

Chrissy Teigen took a disastrous "flight to nowhere" Tuesday night.

She joked later that she was in a room with "water and a tv".

Throughout her dozens of tweets, Teigen also asked how a person who apparently held a United ticket could have been permitted on the ANA flight to Tokyo.




The airline did not immediately say why the wrong boarding pass was accepted.

"I won't be able to sleep until I know how this person figured out they were on the wrong flight".

"Taking off!" she finally tweeted early Wednesday.

The Twitter rant began with Teigen explaining the situation, expressing frustration.

"Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back?" she tweeted. So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere, ' Teigen tweeted.

It may seem outrageous, but it is surprisingly common for planes to return to their point of origin midway through a flight, analysts said.
