Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are receiving hate from fans for being “obnoxious and unnecessary” after travelling in a private Boeing 747 — a double-decker aircraft that  holds up to 660 passengers, but only flew the couple and a few other people on a trip to Tokyo.

Kim took to her Instagram stories to share videos of the luxurious plane, that she referred to as the “Yeezy floating office.”

“No big deal, just taking a private 747. This is how he does it now. Only 747s, private. I’ve never even heard of this, but whatever,” Kardashian said in one of the videos.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star showed off the interior of the plane, which had a lounge, dining areas, bedrooms and reclining seats and more. The couple’s personal trainer also joined them on the flight so they could work out on the aircraft.

“So this is what a private 747 is like, you guys. I’ve never been on one before. Oh my god, there’s bedrooms everywhere. No big deal. This is like endless,” Kardashian said.

Fans felt that the couple’s extravagant travel option was “so obnoxious and unnecessary.”

One fan wrote on Twitter, “Kim Kardashian posted on her story about flying on a private 747. All I’m thinking is what a waste of jet fuel, resources, environmental harm, etc etc etc. Smh. So obnoxious and unnecessary.”

Another tweeted “Renting an entire 747 for themselves is so unbelievably wasteful it makes me sick. Leaving a much larger carbon footprint than they need to. You have the power and wealth to travel sustainably, and instead you do the opposite.For what? An instagram flex?”

 

“I’m missing the connection. @KimKardashian and @kanyewest donate 500000$ to wildfire relief efforts, but take a 747 airplane privately. Will someone explain to them how the climate crisis work? Please?” one person wrote.

 

However, the couple had a luxurious trip after Kardashian revealed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she and West  donated $500,000 to wildfire relief.
