- Many users expressed their feelings on Twitter about Kardashian West and West’s traveling on the jet, pointing out how it could be harming the environment.
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are known for their lavish lifestyles, but they’re now receiving some criticism for their latest luxury. As Cosmopolitan pointed out, on Monday, Kardashian West shared a video on her Instagram story of her and West boarding a private Boeing 747 jet, and the famous couple is already receiving a lot of backlash on Twitter.
In Kardashian West’s posts, she showed off the rooms inside the plane, which looked a lot like a hotel. There were private bedrooms and bathrooms, an office, and a gym, which Kardashian West seemed to plan on using, since she brought her personal trainer, Melissa Alcantara, along for the flight.
The plane was also fully stocked with plenty of drinks and snacks, and West could be seen working at the desk in the story.
In the video, Kardashian West can be heard marveling over the plane, saying that it’s the first time she’s ever been on a private jet like this.
Although some of Kardashian West and West’s fans were impressed with the ride, the response has been largely negative, with many people tweeting to express that they felt that the jet was wasteful and harmful to the environment because the three appeared to be the only non-staff members on the giant plane.
Can someone calculate the carbon footprint of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West taking an EMPTY "luxury 747" to some far flung location? Seating capacity: 660.

Kim & Kanye took a private 747 earlier today…. you wanna talk about contributing factors to climate change, look at celebrities, look at the wealthy. Look at how their excessive ‘go big or go home’ habits are changing the face of the planet.

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.

Some Twitter users felt chartering a jet of this size on top of West and Kardashian West hiring firefighters to protect their mansion during the recent California wildfires was just too much.
Kim & Kanye‘s house almost burns down in the California wildfires which are the most destructive in the history of the state & correlate with global warming.
Also K & K: boast about their private Boeing 747 which is almost empty of passengers & burns over 10 tonnes of fuel an hr
