  • All Nippon Airways Boeing 787 is seen on the taxiway at Haneda international airport in Tokyo

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were on a flight to nowhere after their Tokyo-bound plane returned to Los Angeles when a passenger was found onboard with the wrong ticket. Instead, passengers spent eight hours in the air only to return to the same airport.

Model and actress Chrissy Teigen tweeted from on board the plane: '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.

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

"Almost there, feel like we've been getting nowhere", John Legend sang seven years ago in a dubstep collaboration with Magnetic Man that proved foreshadowing for the singer and his wife Chrissy Teigen.

In an apology to inconvenienced passengers, the airline says it takes pride in customer service and failed on this flight.

After landing back at LAX, things got even more interesting and Teigen held it together by Tweeting every second of her adventure.

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 flight from LAX to Tokyo is about 12 hours long. Although police haven't said exactly what the mix-up was, Teigen tweeted the unauthorized person had a United ticket, they were on ANA. We are on ANA.

After several hours and many more tweets, she told followers that she had finally boarded a new flight and was about to take off early Wednesday. "So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere", she added.

"Taking off! Please don't be the same menu please don't be the same menu", she tweeted.
