Chrissy Teigen's Flight To Tokyo Diverted

All Nippon Airways Flight NH175 had departed Los Angeles International Airport at 11:36 a.m. PT (8:36 a.m. ET), bound for Tokyo's Narita Airport, when an "unauthorized" passenger was discovered, the airline said.

The couple, who are expecting their second child, found themselves on an eight-hour and twenty minute flight from Los Angeles International Airport to, well, Los Angeles International Airport.

Teigen - on the plane with husband John Legend - tweeted that the plane made an about-face about four hours into the scheduled 11-hour flight. 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.

"We apologize to all of our passengers on Flight 175; we failed to deliver the customer service we strive for", the airline tweeted Wednesday. Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back?

He says that forced it to touch down closer the end of the runway. "We just skidded on the ice", according to an audio transcript. Investigators blame the wintry weather in Boston for that plan skidding into the grass.

A source told CNN that an authorized passenger was on the flight.

This guy named Raffy posted: "My first tweet can't be more epic than this: just survived an 8 hour LAX-LAX Flight with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend". Although police haven't said exactly what the mix-up was, Teigen tweeted the unauthorized person had a United ticket, they were on ANA.

She eventually learned the passenger boarded the plane with a United Airlines ticket rather than the All Nippon Airways.

Teigen lost no time in informing Twitter of her weird situation. "So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere", she added.

"Taking off! Please don't be the same menu please don't be the same menu", she tweeted.

Roughly five hours after the whole mess started, Teigen said they were boarding a new plane.

"ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience", the airline said.
