If you have clicked on this article, chances are you know who Chrissy Teigen is. In case you are NOT aware, let me clue you into the queen of our generation, the messiah of our time, the woman who should be President, Chrissy m-fking Teigen.
Chrissy Teigen first came into the entertainment scene back in 2004 when she came on as an IGN babe, and became a substitute model on Deal or No Deal from 2006-2007. Chrissy Teigen is currently signed with IMG Models out of New York and is most well known for being apart of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues as well as being on the cover of Maxim's calendar back in 2007.
Chrissy Teigen isn't just a model though, she is television host, author, cook, mother, wife, and most of all, a complete bad ass.
She released a cookbook titled Cravings: Recipes For All The Food You Want To Eat back in 2016, and is expected to release a second in early 2018. She also hosts reality game show Lip Sync Battle along side LL Cool J on Spike Network.
Amongst all of Chrissy Teigen's amazing accomplishments, she basically rules the social media world. If you are not already following her on Snapchat... you need to get on it. Her username is just simply, chrissyteigen.
If you should be following her on any social platform though you MUST follow her on Twitter, she slays the game. Why she isn't the most followed person on that place I will never know.
Earlier in the evening we were greeted with a tweet from the legend (no pun intended) that read, "a flying first for me: 4 hours into an 11 hour flight and we are turning around because we have a passenger who isn’t supposed to be on this plane. Why...why do we all gotta go back, I do not know."
News then started to break that an 11 hour direct flight from LAX to Tokyo was rerouted back to LAX after a passenger realized they were on the incorrect flight... four hours in.
The flyer had a ticket to board a United flight and instead boarded a flight through ANA. I checked at least three websites to see if they had a United flight set for Tokyo, but I couldn't find any information past that they were on the incorrect airline.
The biggest question I have after all this debacle is, "don't you get your ticket scanned before going on the plane? Shouldn't they have seen that they had an incorrect ticket?"
Apparently Chrissy Teigen had the same question.
So now, every single person on this flight gets to fly eight hours to convenience one person.
How did this person figure out they were on the wrong flight almost half way through? What is AMA going to do for all the travelers that had to be completely screwed over because of this one person? Did this person have to sheepishly tell an attendant that they somehow mad a mistake? How did the beedoop machine not register an incorrect flyer?
In the words of Chrissy Teigen...
At least this guy got an epic first tweet out of it.
Here's to hoping you get to Tokyo soon Chrissy!
