Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were two of the 226 passengers aboard a plane that left LAX for Tokyo and then turned around four hours into the flight. An unauthorized passenger was found aboard the flight. Teigen tweeted the ordeal as it unfolded. “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,” she tweeted. “Why … why do we all gotta go back, I do not know.” Teigen’s tweet storm continued. “Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere,” she wrote. After hours back at LAX Teigen and Legend boarded another flight to Tokyo.
