(CNN) - Officials said an "unauthorized person" was discovered on an All Nippon Airways flight heading to Tokyo.

After the flight returned to the airport hours into the trip, police said it was just a mix up.

Model Chrissy Teigen and her husband, singer John Legend, were on the flight and took the whole thing in stride, according to Chrissy Teigen's tweets.

"Welcome to Los Angeles," Legend said.

"That dinner was so good," Teigen replied.

Tiegen said on Twitter that passengers were told the person in question had a ticket for a completely different airline.

Officials say they're accommodating all 226 passengers in a hotel and rebooking them for a Wednesday morning flight.
