@Techall : You absolutely DO have to have a valid passort to board ANY international flight, including JAPAN. (to assume otherwise is a little absurd and suggests you dont have a lot of international stamps in your passport)
As far as the plane turning around 4 hours into flight. Its a 13 hour flight. The uncertified passenger could have been a terrorist prepared to blow up the entire lane. Surely you see the logic behind the pilot’s decision to not jeopardize the lives of the other 500 or so defenseless passengers for 9 more hours as opposed to 4 hours, for convenience sake. “Sort it all out up arrival” ... as though some PotatoHead left his iphone at the check-in counter.
