Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Finally Arrive in Tokyo After Flight Drama

The Legends are finally in Tokyo! Chrissy Teigen wrote on Twitter to share with the fans that she and husband John Legend have finally arrived in Japan’s capital after their “flight to nowhere.”

“We are HERE!” the 32-year-old pregnant model tweeted on Wednesday, December 27. “We uhhhhh went ahead and cancelled our connecting flight to nagoya and 3 hour car ride for…obvious reasons…but are happy to stay here in Tokyo!” Teigen shared in another tweet. “We feel like young lovers again. Been a while since the ramen adventures of 2012!”

Chrissy also wrote to her millions of followers, “I need a Nintendo charger in tokyo. This should be…extremely easy.”

On Tuesday, the model—who is currently pregnant with her second baby, husband John Legend and 224 other passengers took a nonstop, 12-hour All Nippon Airways flight to Tokyo when about four hours in, the plane took an U-turn and returned to Los Angeles. The airline release an official  statement and informed that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and that as part of the company’s security procedure, the flight had to be redirected to its origin.

Unsurprisingly, Teigen, who is one of the liveliest presences on Twitter, took to the social media platform to share the exasperating experience, and her tweets immediately went viral.

Teigen live-tweeted the flight and the hours she spent at LAX waiting to leave for a second time. “Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere,” Teigen wrote. “Like we were all just havin a great time up here flyin in the sky watching gran torino time to go home now.”

“I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo,” she added.

After passengers were interrogated by the police, Teigen wrote she was “moved to a room with Bravo” in the airport. “I have been moved to a room with Bravo,” she wrote and posted a picture of a TV playing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Clearly the authorities are trying to keep me quiet so I don’t BLOW THE LID OFF THIS ‘SITCH.’”

Nippon Airways apologized to passengers in an official statement on Wednesday: “We apologize to all of our passengers on Flight 175; we failed to deliver the customer service we strive for. Thank you all for your comments and allowing us to connect, learn and serve you better. We welcome ongoing feedback to understand how we can work to make this right.”

Teigen was not impressed with the apology and responded to the airline’s tweet.  “Honestly everyone on the ground and in the air were very kind and apologetic, but I just need to know why we couldn’t have flown to tokyo and settled this one person’s mistake (who was going to tokyo all along) there, in tokyo. 230 people on this flight.”
