After a number of hours, the couple, who were a part of the aircraft during the police questioning, were able to board another flight. And finally, Teigen updated her followers with the good news: They landed in Tokyo and enjoyed some delicious ramen noodles.

The couple, the Daily Mail explained, had visited Tokyo in the year for their 2013 wedding, long before welcoming baby Luna and the announcement of their second child was on the way.

While the mid-flight incident seems humorous, security experts agree that the run of the flight was the correct response to what could have been a real threat for the security.

“It is almost unheard of to turn back, unless there is a security or safety-related reason for it. I think in this case, there must be a safety-related link,” Jeffrey Price, a professor in the Aviation Department at the Metropolitan State University of Denver, told Travel + Leisure. “If you are on the wrong plane, and in one way or another they that from the mid or you figure it out, and you go to the place where that plane is going to land. And then they will rebook you if you’re there.”
