Chrissy Teigen’s nightmare flight to Tokyo had somewhat of a happy ending.

The more than 200 passengers of All Nippon Airways Flight 175 were reportedly given 30,000 Yen in compensation for the inconvenience caused by the plane heading back to LAX four hours into the flight, according to TMZ. However, the conversion to U.S. dollars is only about $265.

Chrissy Teigen live-tweeted the U-turn journey after the airline's crew discovered that an unauthorized passenger boarded the flight.

All Nippon Airways tweeted out an apology to those affected, welcoming “ongoing feedback to understand how we can work to make this right.”
