Chrissy Teigen and her fellow passengers on a flight bound for Tokyo from Los Angeles thought they were on their way to Japan when the plane's wheels left the airport tarmac in California Tuesday night.

One brother had a ticket on All Nippon Airways and the other had a ticket on a United Airlines flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News. "Why...why do we all gotta go back, I do not know", tweeted Teigen, 32.

The airline later issued a statement to CNN saying, "one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight". CNN reports the crew discovered the mystery passenger and alerted the pilot, who made a decision to return to LAX.

After tweeting that the eight hour, 20 minute flight had reached LAX, there was a further delay while police carried out checks. An unauthorized passenger on board caused the major inconvenience - and it's all kind of a long story that Chrissy was happy to share with fans in great detail while she live blogged the whole insane incident on Twitter. "ANA is researching the situation now to determine how the passenger boarded the flight".

Eventually, Teigen and Legend tweeted in the safety of an airline lounge.

Tiegen, who was travelling with her husband John Legend, proceeded to post updates throughout the ordeal, masking her frustration with sharp wit.

"Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere. We all have the same questions", she wrote. Everyone gets to suffer equally, except for one fan who managed to get a selfie with the pair.

The incident is now under investigation by FBI agents, who have talked to both brothers, England said.

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

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.
