Kim Kardashian West admits private 747 flight was an ‘unnecessary extravagance’ but won’t apologise

There has been many extravagances in the life of Kim Kardashian West but few have brought as much criticism as the private 747 flight she took with husband Kanye West, for a recent trip to Tokyo.

The 38-year-old reality TV star has opened up about the trip with her rapper husband and has said that she "doesn’t expect other people to understand," after they hired a jumbo so that they can fly alone.

The flight was universally panned on social media as many shared their thoughts about the environmental impact the flight had and the way that Kim eulogised about the interior of the plane in an Instagram post.

In the video, Kim showed off the "pretty insane" interior of the 747 and was gobsmacked by the lounge areas, bedrooms and the spacious cabins with rows of empty seats.

This prompted many to comment about the effects of climate change and slammed the couple for making a huge donation to wildlife relief efforts and then using the private jet.

The 747 can hold up to 660 passengers and is apparently the same model as the US president Donald Trump’s flight, Air Force One.
