All Nippon Airways. Be warned. You’re going to be getting a letter from a disgruntled passenger — model Chrissy Teigen.
Teigen, 32, who is expecting baby number two with John Legend, was not pleased about flying the airlines with her husband Tuesday. The ANA flight was destined for Tokyo but went a total of nowhere after eight hours and 20 minutes.
Teigen and 150 passengers traveled for fours hours over the Pacific Ocean before the airplane made an abrupt U-turn and returned to Los Angeles.
It’s clear Teigen purchased the Wi-fi onboard and made use of Twitter. Often.
“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,” Teigen wrote. “Why…why do we all gotta go back, I do not know.”
The seat map clearly showed it was an unusual flight.
Teigen was not satisfied with this return flight to nowhere, even with a stellar movie selection that included Clint Eastwood’s 2008 drama Gran Torino.
“Laughing,” but frustrated over the cause — a person apparently had boarded the wrong flight with a United ticket — Teigen went after the airport boarding machines.
Teigen landed back at LAX after 8 hours and 20 minutes in the air (just imagine how the people in the cheap seats felt).
But she said she’d keep it all in stride. “The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo,” she said.
There was a swipe at the boarding pass machine.
