Chrissy Teigen's Holiday Travel Snafu Was Worse Than Yours
With Christmas completed, adorable celebrity couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend readied for New Years by taking a trip to Tokyo. Well, trying to. See, they hit a snag 4 hours into the 11-hour flight out of Los Angeles. Naturally, Teigen tweeted updates throughout the travel nightmare. And though this would bring most of us to our knees lamenting the soul-crushing enigmas of airline rules, she remained cool as a spring breeze.
So, Teigen and Legend got no answers, and neither has the press. CBS reports that All Nippon Airways issued a statement which reads in part:
During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot. As part of the airline’s security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked.
ANA is researching the situation currently to determine how the passenger boarded the flight. ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience. We take great pride providing exemplary customer service, and on this flight we failed to do so.
An FBI investigation to the matter is ongoing, though no arrests have been made, nor charges filed as of yet.
So how did a person board the wrong flight with the wrong airline and not notice? Who was this perplexing person who somehow managed to miss all the signage and flight info even as they boarded? How did no one at ANA notice the boarding pass was clearly not correct? Why did that utterly bizarre mistake force 150 other people’s travel plans to be derailed? Why was ramen handed out? What flavor was it?
We may never know. But please feel free to wildly speculate in comments.
