Model and television personality Chrissy Teigen tweeted for several hours Tuesday while aboard a bizarre 8-hour "flight to nowhere" after her plane made an abrupt U-turn on its way to Japan.

ABC News reports the saga started Tuesday night at around 8:30 p.m. Pacific Time when Teigen, 32, tweeted that her Tokyo-bound All Nippon Airways flight made a U-turn back to Los Angeles because of an apparent mix-up with a passenger.

An ANA spokesperson attributed the mix-up to a problem with a customer who boarded the incorrect flight.

Tiegen, her husband, singer John Legend, and a full flight of passengers spent full eight hours in the air, only to end up back at Los Angeles International Airport.

The model's tweets to her nine million followers quickly went viral.

They were finally able to board a new flight early Wednesday morning.
