never says what the indicator was, can't search audio at work.

Keanu Reeves knows how to handle an emergency situation on the big screen — and in real life.

Over the weekend, a United flight the John Wick star, 54, was traveling 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. 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.

“SkyWest Flight 5223, operating as United Express from San Francisco to Burbank on Saturday, March 23, diverted to Bakersfield due to a mechanical indication,” SkyWest Airlines Corporate Communications told Yahoo in a statement. “The flight landed safely without incident in Bakersfield. Passengers deplaned normally at the gate and were then transported via ground transportation to Burbank.”
