If you’ve been following along with Chrissy Teigen‘s crazy story about her flight to Tokyo, you’re probably wondering how someone got onto the flight without a ticket. We finally have the answer!

Two brothers, who are American citizens, reportedly got onto the flight using the same ticket, which was duplicated. They both were traveling to Tokyo, but had booked flights on separate airlines so they were able to get through security without a problem.

One brother had a ticket on All Nippon Airways and the other had a ticket on a United Airlines flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

The brothers have nearly identical names and used the same ticket to get on the ANA flight, though it’s not clear how the brother with a United ticket found a seat on the ANA plane. The FBI is considering weighing criminal charges against them.

“During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot,” ANA said in a statement. “As part of the airline’s security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked. ANA is researching the situation currently to determine how the passenger boarded the flight.”

Four hours into the 11-hour flight to Tokyo, the plane turned around and returned to Los Angeles.

Chrissy live-tweeted what happened and instead of having the plane land in Tokyo, the plane rerouted and flew four hours back to Los Angeles.

“Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake? Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask? We all have the same questions,” Chrissy tweeted.

Thankfully, she doesn’t seem too upset. She wrote, “I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo.”

Read all of the tweets below!

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. Why…why do we all gotta go back, I do not know

So many questions and I have no answers. Either do they. This person must be mortified though

.@chrissyteigen is on an international flight that turned around 4 hours in because a passenger isn’t supposed to be on plane. Look at this flight path! This is my Twilight Zone.

Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere. Like we were all just havin a great time up here flyin in the sky watching gran torino time to go home now

This person is so lucky that we will all have to deplane. Imagine having to walk off alone. The shame!

I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo

I won’t be able to sleep until I know how this person figured out they were on the wrong flight. That’s all I ask. 150 people have been majorly inconvenienced, please, just tell me

Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake? Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask? We all have the same questions.

They keep saying the person had a United ticket. We are on ANA. So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere

There is a 20 minute interview before we can get off the plane!! This is my dream. Police! Talk to me talk to me

Still on the plane. Starting to get a little…as james franco in spring breakers would say… spicious

Police were interviewing all the people seated around the mystery person once we got off the plane. Why would they do this! I MUST KNOW MORE

no one will spill anything 🙁 I wish I had more for you guys. I wish I could be your snowden

I have been moved to a room with Bravo. Clearly the authorities are trying to keep me quiet so I don’t BLOW THE LID OFF THIS “SITCH”
