Twitter users were thoroughly entertained on Dec. 26 when Chrissy Teigen tweeted about her now-infamous flight to nowhere on Dec. 26 — ANA (All Nippon Airways) No. 175, which turned around four hours after its departure due to an unauthorized person on-board. Though Chrissy and husband John Legend eventually made it to their destination (Tokyo) safely, a lot of people asked the model why the celebrity duo didn't fly private to avoid the hassle.
So many fans had the same question, in fact, that the pregnant 32-year-old addressed the inquiry in a separate tweet. "A lot of people have been asking this and I would just like you all to know that a round trip international private flight is like...300,000 dollars," she wrote.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's net worths are still impressive.
Clearly, a lot of people assume that all celebrities fly private, and while Chrissy and John certainly boast hefty net worths — $10 million and $40 million, respectively — $300,000 is one hell of a price tag for a total of two flights. Given how much the couple travels overseas for work and leisure — Chrissy recently documented their trip to Oslo, Norway — that adds up quickly.
Plus, unlike some stars, it looks like the fun-loving duo doesn't mind mingling with us common folk. Even after their disastrous flight, the pair posed for a photo with a fan. "My first tweet can’t be more epic than this: just survived an 8-hour LAX-LAX flight with @chrissyteigen and @johnlegend on #ANA #NH175," Twitter user @Raffywu wrote. His only tweet now boasts more than 111K likes and 6.6K retweets.
All in all, Chrissy handled the entire situation with class. "Honestly everyone on the ground and in the air were very kind and apologetic," she said of the ANA staff.
