Published on : Thursday, December 28, 2017

planeplaneA flight bound for Tokyo returned to Los Angeles hours after taking off when the crew discovered that one of the passengers had boarded the wrong plane, All Nippon Airways said Wednesday.

 
The pilot of Flight 175 decided to return to the originating airport as part of the airline’s security procedures, ANA said in statements that apologised to passengers but supported the decision.

 
Model Chrissy Teigen and her singer husband, John Legend, were aboard and she live-tweeted the developments. She wondered on Twitter why the plane was turning around four hours into the 11-hour flight.

 
“Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake? Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask? We all have the same questions,” she wrote.

 
Teigen also tweeted photos, videos and updates as they waited to resume the trip.
The flight left Los Angeles International Airport at 11:36 a.m. Tuesday and returned at 7:33 p.m.
