All Nippon Airways Flight 175 left Los Angeles International Airport at around 11.30am yesterday, but it never arrived at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport.
Model Chrissy Teigen, who was on the plane, tweeted that the flight made a U-turn about four hours into the 11-hour flight.
Teigen says passengers were told that someone had managed to board the ANA flight with a United Airlines ticket.
The plane landed at LAX around 7.30pm after eight hours in the air.
Airport police tell KABC-TV that there was a ‘mix-up’ that’s been resolved, and the flight has been rescheduled to depart today.
