Imagine this: your flight has just made an emergency landing and you’re stranded miles from your final destination. You need to take a road trip, and the one and only Keanu Reeves happens to get on the bus with you.
By pure coincidence, this was a reality for passengers of a United flight last weekend. The group received the surprise of their life when 54-year-old actor Keanu bunched up with them on their road trip!
The whole ordeal started when Keanu joined them on a flight from San Francisco to Burbank, which was forced to make an emergency landing in Bakersfield.
This was my Saturday, guys. The plane almost crashed and Keanu Reeves was on it. https://t.co/iDkdzIGaBb

To reach their final destination, the passengers were told to take alternative transport.
And since it was faster to drive than take the next flight, they all bunched together and got on a van!
Everyone just couldn’t believe it.
Someone even recorded Keanu discussing their group travel plans.
“Keanu got stranded somewhere in California and had to take a bus instead of a plane and some guy filmed the entire experience and i am BEGGING y’all to watch this,” someone posted on Twitter.

If you weren’t already convinced about what a genuine and sweet guy Keanu is, he can be heard in the clip reading off facts about Bakersfield from his phone, to keep everyone entertained.
What a sweetie!
“That time when your flight out from #GDC 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,” a fellow passenger wrote on Twitter.
It’s safe to say Keanu’s presence brightened the lucky passngers’ day, and this story has certainly put a smile on our faces!
