Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend had a flight to remember.

The two were on a plane from Los Angeles to Tokyo that turned around four hours into its flight.

Los Angeles airport police say they were told to be ready for ANA Flight 175's return before it was discovered there was a mix-up that was ultimately straightened out.

Police interviewed the passengers for information on the mysterious traveller, and Teigen jokingly apologised to her 9.2 million followers for not being able to provide officers with details.

CBS Los Angeles reports model Chrissy Teigen was on board and tweeted about the ordeal as it was happening. Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? "We all have the same questions", she wrote. She said no charges were filed, but the investigation is ongoing.

"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", Teigen tweeted.
