Either you go big or go home, but how big is too big? Hip-hop superstar turned fashion designer, Kanye West is no stranger to flashiness, nor shocking the public. Kanye West pushes it to the limit this week by flying himself, his wife Kim Kardashian West, and Kim’s personal trainer Melissa Alcantara on a private Boeing 747 plane.
Now it’s one thing to fly on a private plane, but to fly on a double-decker private jet that seats over 660 is the definition of excessive luxury.
According to Forbes magazine, it costs approx. $220,000 per hour to rent a Boeing 747, making it one of the most expensive private planes ever! The Boeing 747 a.k.a Air Force One, is typically only used by White House officials, which mainly includes the President of the United States.
According to the Travel & Leisure website, The Boeing 747 includes, “ [A] luxury double-bed suite, marble bathroom, lounge area, guest rooms, dining area, cushy seats, and other areas to really spread out.”
Kim Kardashian West posted the inside of the lavish plane via her Instagram story on Tuesday night saying, “No big deal just taking a private 747 this is how [Kanye] does it now. Only 747s. Private. I've never even heard of this but whatever.Kim Kardashian West didn’t mention where her and Kanye would be flying, but she did mention it would be long flight, yet she wanted to “workout” during the flight, therefore she invited her personal trainer Melissa Alcantara aboard the flight as well.
Kim claimed that the flight was given to him by “Team Adidas”
for his Yeezy brand, but some fans speculate that the couple are just trying to get accomodated with flying presidentially. Kanye seriously plans to run for the presidency in 2024, according to the Independent website.
“If I decide to do it, it will be done, I’m not going to try,” said Kanye West in a radio interview with Power 92 Chicago’s DJ Pharris. “ Yes, 100 percent it could happen… 2024.”
Whether it is practicing for the oval office or just flexing for Instagram, it is evident that there is no limit for the West family.
