Keanu Reeves took road trip with stranded passengers after flight was forced to make emergency landing

The legendary actor that is Keanu Reeves turns 59 today, so many happy returns to Mr John Wick himself.
While we all know how good of an actor he is, Reeves seems like a pretty good person as well.
From the pub goers in Hertfordshire who were shocked by his presence on a cold February afternoon, to the star's emotional appreciation of the crew on John Wick 4 - it really does show the human side of the 59-year-old.
Over the years, many have praised Reeves for how he treats the general public.
A perfect example of this is when Reeves took a road trip with stranded passengers after their flight was forced to make an emergency landing.
Back in March 2019, Reeves was on board a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Burbank which was forced to make an emergency landing.
The flight was halted in Bakersfield - though thankfully no injuries were reported, while the aircraft landed on the ground safely.
For those who don't reside in that part of the US, Bakersfield and Los Angeles are separated by some 110 miles and is roughly a two hour drive apart.
Of course, the airline would have got Reeves and his fellow passengers on a later flight, however, it seemed a lot quicker to take a van for the remainder of the journey back to LA.
As a result, Reeves took the over 100 mile+ road trip with his fellow passengers - that's certainly something all the passengers will be telling their grandkids in the years to come.
Some of the travellers posted snaps of them with Reeves to social media, amid all the travel chaos.
Captioning a photo of himself and Reeves, Amir Blum, one of the passengers on board the plane, wrote: "That time when your flight out from [San Francisco’s Game Development Conference] 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.
"I mean, near death experience followed by fans annoying you for pictures. Doesn’t get much worse."
Additional video footage taken from the road trip saw Reeves stepping up to figure out travel arrangements, taking a real lead in ensuring the group got back to LA in one piece.
Other social media posts from the time said that Reeves entertained his fellow passengers by sharing his knowledge of Bakersfield and using his phone to play native music on YouTube.
What a great guy!
