The United flight Keanu Reeves was travelling aboard from San Francisco to Burbank in Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Bakersfield.
While it landed safely and there were no injuries, there was confusion as logistics were worked out. The video showed the actor, a seasoned traveler for work, stepping up to help with travel arrangements and then taking a van with other passengers to their final destination, Los Angeles because it was quicker to drive than fly.
“That time when your flight out from the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco almost crashes and you have to emergency land in a remote airport but at least Keanu Reeves is having as bad a day as you are,” wrote fellow passenger Amir Blum, the co-creator of the game studio Unboxed Experience. He added, “I mean, near death experience followed by fans annoying you for pictures. Doesn’t get much worse.”
Reeve’s latest film, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, opens on May 17 and sees him working with Halle Berry. Here’s hoping his flights are smoother as he promotes it.
