Keanu Reeves Goes Through An Emergency Landing, Shares A Van With Other Passengers Instead Of Private Luxurious Ride

Keanu Reeves has once again shown his good side. Which, at this point, seems like the only one he has. This time, the 54-year-old actor was on a flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles when the plane made an emergency landing in Bakersfield, California. That’s a nearly two-hour drive from the Burbank Airport. And, according to eye witnesses and online footage, Mr Reeves not only organized everyone into a group, he joined them on the bus ride to their destination and made the most out of it.

The flight diverted due to a “mechanical indication” and landed “safely without incident,” according to Freddy Lemmo, a representative for SkyWest, an airline that frequently operates on behalf of other airlines, in this case, United Express.

Captured and shared by multiple social media users, Mr Reeves is shown calmly speaking to an airline representative and leading a discussion with a group of passengers, trying to figure out the most efficient way to get to Burbank.

“The people who can unload the bags won’t be here for three hours. The vans will be here in an hour,” he said and proceeded to explain that it would be much easier to leave and worry about luggage later. At that point, they decided that a bus ride to L.A. was the most optimal solution.

And it looks like Mr Reeves is the person you want to ride with. The actor kept the group entertained by reading out facts about Bakersfield and playing music native to the area.

“Its population is about 380,000, making it the 9th most popular city in California, and the 52nd most popular city in the nation,” Reeves was seen reading from his phone on a fellow passenger’s Instagram story that has since expired.

The trip finally ended with the group safely getting to L.A., and Mr Reeves was last seen heading into a Carl’s Jr.

At this point, I'm pretty sure Keanu isn't a human being. He must be some kind of angel send by some god to do good for the humans and be an example for mankind. Become a movie star so the would get the attention. And I haven't talked about the fact he doesn't age. This man is out of this world.

Yeah this was pretty cool. With his wealth could’ve easily rented a car and just drove himself the rest of the way, or paid for car service...... but he decided to go along for the adventure! which is awesome!!!
