Teigen - on the plane with husband John Legend - tweeted that the plane made an about-face about four hours into the scheduled 11-hour flight.
All Nippon Airways tweeted an apology Wednesday to passengers who were aboard a flight that departed Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) for Tokyo and returned to the airport mid-flight before reaching its destination.

"At the time during the flight, the pilot in command was presented with information about the discrepancy in the passenger manifest".
