“A flying first for me: 4 hours in an 11 hour flight, and we turn around, because we have a passenger who is not meant to be on this plane. Why…why do we all have to go back, I don’t know,” Teigen said in a tweet.

Passengers on the flight were reportedly explained that she had to make a U-turn, because the “unauthorized” person had a ticket on another airline.

“They continue to say that the person is a United ticket. We are on ANA. So actually, the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop sounds that can’t,” Teigen added.
