Chrissy Teigen tweeted her way through a grievous eight-hour flight from Los Angeles to Los Angeles Tuesday. No, that's not a typo.
Apparently, an unidentified passenger discovered they were on the wrong flight four full hours into the plane's journey to its intended final destination of Tokyo. Instead of simply inconveniencing the lone dolt on the said flight, All Nippon Airways chose to inconvenience every single person on board by turning around and returning to LAX.
"Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake?" Teigen, who was on the Tokyo-bound flight with husband John "Jesus Christ" Legend, later tweeted. "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."
Read the first of Teigen's account below, which amazingly managed to include a fitting Spring Breakers reference:
In a fairly vague statement to CNN, an ANA spokesperson said the seemingly bizarre decision to inconvenience 225 passengers who were definitely on the right plane due to the mistake of one person was part of their "security" nonsense. "The cabin crew notified the pilot that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight, and the pilot in command made the decision to return to the originating airport," the spokesperson said. "We take great pride providing exemplary customer service, and on this flight we failed to do so." No shit.
