Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Survived An Eight-Hour Flight To Nowhere

December 27, 2017 / Posted by:

Stars, they’re just like us! They too can arrive at the airport expecting a simple flight, only to find themselves questioning the existence of Satan while languishing for hours in a soul-rattling airline hell. That’s what recently happened to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, except they got to suffer in First Class.

Chrissy pulled a Chrissy Teigen and documented the drama on Twitter yesterday. Chrissy and John were headed to Tokyo on an eleven hour flight from Los Angeles, and four hours into their flight, it was announced that the plane was turning around and going back to LAX.

The passenger had a United ticket and they were all on an All Nippon Airways flight.

According to The Guardian, the passenger wasn’t a security threat – they just got on the wrong plane. Chrissy has a theory for how that happened:

They returned to LAX and Chrissy went into a room playing Real Housewives and they were held in passenger purgatory for a few hours.

ANA released a statement to BuzzFeed regarding the situation. They say the flight arrived back at LAX at 7:33pm and they’re very sorry for the inconvenience of their whoopsie.

“During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot. As part of the airline’s security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked. ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience. We take great pride providing exemplary customer service, and on this flight we failed to do so.”

To pass the time, Chrissy and John napped and ate some hot kettle water instant ramen noodles. Eventually Chrissy and John were allowed to board a new flight, but that didn’t stop the conspiracy theories from starting.

All this drama just for some Tokyo sushi!

But what if Chrissy is right about the ticket-scanning machine? What if it is just a machine that makes a beedoop sound. I mean, airports are a nightmare and a half, but they might be just a teensy bit worth the trouble if I’m able to scam a $99 discount ticket to Saskatoon into a first class ticket to Hawaii.
