Plane makes U-turn for carrying wrong passenger

Plane makes U-turn for carrying wrong passenger

The tweet-happy model shared details of the freaky flight on Tuesday (26Dec17) night with her followers, explaining that she and her husband were supposed to be headed from Los Angeles to the Japanese capital, but instead the flight turned around after four hours and headed home - landing back at Los Angeles Airport (LAX) eight hours after it departed.

'They keep saying the person had a United ticket.

It appears the mistake was the passenger in question may have been on the wrong airline entirely.

The model, who has amassed a substantial Twitter following thanks to her recipes, sense of humor and regular digs at Donald Trump, was also able to see the bright side of the situation, writing: "I don't know why I'm not more upset about this".

One person certainly lucked out in this situation. "We are on ANA", she wrote.

"Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back?" she tweeted.

Snow expected to miss city on Christmas
A total of 1 to 3 inches of accumulation is expected between now and when the advisory runs out at 6 a.m. on Monday. Highs on Christmas Day are forecast around 20 degrees and the overnight low could bottom out around zero, he said.

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

"Taking off!" she finally tweeted early Wednesday. "So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere". A Twitter user named Raffy snapped a selfie with Teigen and Legend and posted it as his first-ever tweet. ANA and United are codeshare partners.

"We take great pride providing exemplary customer service, and on this flight we failed to do so", the statement said.

The Tokyo-bound flight, NH175, was interrupted on behalf of a single mixed-up passenger, who had boarded the incorrect flight. The total time for the flight to take off and return was just over eight hours.

A statement from All Nippon Airways says the pilot chose to return to the originating airport as part of the airline's security procedures.

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