Kim Kardashian and Kanye West boarded a private 747 jet for a recent long-haul flight, sparking outrage over the extravagant method of travel.
Kardashian, 38, showed off the spacious and nearly empty interior of the commercial-size airliner in a series of videos posted to her Instagram Stories.
No big deal, just taking a private 747, Kardashian says, filming West, 41, walking up to the double decker plane. This is how he does it now. Only 747s, private. Ive never even heard of this, but whatever.
Travel & Leisure notes the plane could hold up to 660 passengers, and points out that Air Force One is also a Boeing 747.
On board, Kardashian showed off the customized interior, which featured lounge areas, bedrooms and spacious cabins full of empty seats. The jet also contains plenty of work space, which the mother of three calls the Yeezy floating office. In another video clip, she shouts out Team Adidas, Yeezys parent company.
So this is what a private 747 is like, you guys. Ive never been on one before. Oh my god, theres bedrooms everywhere. No big deal. This is like endless, she says, noting its pretty insane.
Viewers seemed to agree on that last point, with many saying that the couples decision to fly on such a large plane unnecessarily was tactless and harmful to the environment.
All Im thinking is what a waste of jet fuel, resources, environmental harm, wrote one Twitter user, who called the couples flight obnoxious and unnecessary.
Another commenter on Twitter felt that taking the extravagant trip after making a half-million-dollar donation to wildfire relief efforts was hypocritical.

I don’t see the issue. If they weren’t using it...someone else would. At least they are spending the money, and shuffling it around the economy.
It is envy.
The ole green-eyed monster.
The have-nots cannot stand the fact that Kardashian/West are extravagant.
As long as they talked to algore and got their carbon credits.
Even conspicuous consumption keeps people employed.
Stay out of it. It’s their money.
They don’t need your approval.
Tend to your own ‘Energy Footprints’.
Sounds like loads of fun to me.
Lots of people need to grow up.
As long as they don’t lecture us on global warming, sustainable energy or other such bullshit, I don’t care what they do.
A lot of people need to mind their own business, no one cares what they think about the legal activities of others.
If Kanye did not support Trump, then this story would have never seen the light of day.
The Obama’s did the same, only with our money and while on our time.
Agreed. They can spend as they please. Plus did you hear how they went out of their way to help their neighbors in the CA fires? And they donated sizable sum to recovery effort so there.
I’m not a fan of either of them.
However, it’s their money and they can do what they want.
I don’t care if each of them flies alone in a 747 separately. It’s not my money and they aren’t hurting me, nor anyone else.
Kinda like when us little people turn on all the lights and crank up the A/C on Erf Day...we all do our part.
They have to remove a row on both sides of the aisle to fit her butt in a seat.
suck it up, snowflakes. Think of all the ground crew that get paid extra bucks for maintaining that plane.
All of them don't amount to a spit in the ocean in the big picture. I once read about guy who used the glow of his cellphone screen when he went to the toilet after dark so he wouldn't have to turn on the lights. It didn't say what he did about flushing. I bet the guy complaining about Kanye is like that.
This is new new current style of what passes for reporting and it is a perfect example of why people despise the media. The headline blares about the couple being wasteful and obnoxious. That statement is from a two anonymous Twitter users. Its a cheap way for the MSM to insult their political enemies.
The reality is you have a couple of basement dwelling envious nobodys on Twitter who are quoted in the article so the MSM can smear people it hates, Twitter is a sewer the MSM drinks from.
Imagine if they chartered the Trump Organization’s Trump Force One 757 instead.
The Leftists would put a price on their heads as well as their Children..
