Air Nippon Airways Compensates Tokyo Flight Passengers 30000 Yen

John Legend attend the 5th annual Beautycon festival at Los Angeles Convention Center Aug.13 2017 in Los Angeles

Law enforcement sources told ABC that the brothers, who are both American citizens, each had tickets to Tokyo; one ticket was for ANA and the other was for United Airlines.

In a series of tweets, Teigen called the incident a flying first for her and asked "why do we all gotta go back, I do not know".

"ANA wishes to restate its honest apologies to the passengers on NH 175 that were impacted by the delayed flight from Los Angeles International (LAX) to Tokyo Narita (NRT) on December 26th". CNN reports the crew discovered the mystery passenger and alerted the pilot, who made a decision to return to LAX.

The passenger reportedly had a boarding pass for a United flight, not an ANA flight, which makes this entire mix-up even more confounding, given the number times are an airline passenger's boarding pass and identification are scanned and scrutinized from the time they arrive at an airport to the time they're allowed on a plane.

In 2015, for example, a British Airways flight flew back to Heathrow Airport just 30 minutes into the seven-hour flight to Dubai because of an overwhelming odor coming from the lavatory. Teigen - on the plane with husband John Legend - tweeted that the plane made an about-face about four hours into the scheduled 11-hour flight.


Eventually, Teigen and Legend boarded a new flight that included Yoda as their flight buddy and Star Wars music.

As a result of the diversion, passengers spent 8 hours on board the flight to nowhere.

"Why did we all get punished for this one person's mistake? ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience", it said. Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? "We are on ANA", Teigen tweeted.

An ANA spokesperson has said that the situation was being researched to determine exactly how the passenger ended up barding the wrong flight, ABC News reported.

The airline could face a stiff fine from US Customs and Border Protection for letting the passenger board and not taking an accurate headcount.
