We made the seven-hour, two-flight trek to our extended family’s place over the holidays. There was snow, there was traffic, there was a lot of waiting in line — it was a real test of patience. Our favourite A-list celebrities, on the other hand, were traveling in a more relaxing fashion, arriving at their in-laws via private jet.
It’s not that we begrudge them. Celebrity is as celebrity does, and we guess they’ve earned it — but we can’t help but notice the difference in legroom.
Kourtney Kardashian and partner Scott Disick, for example, took their family up, up and away in a private chartered aircraft — but not before stopping to pose for a picture on the plane’s wing. They also took the time to make a Boomerang video. And then several more snaps. It’s okay though, it’s not like the plane’s leaving without them.
And the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella, also made private aviation the focus of their Insta-game this week, with a series of shots capturing Bella looking cozy and comfortable and certainly not feeling like cattle prior to boarding. Can you say #sponsored?
See how these stars and others spent this past week, living lives that are totally and utterly unrelatable to us.
Paris Hilton’s pets have more Instagram followers than you.
The heiress has started (okay, one of her minions, probably) an Instagram account for her pets that showcases tiny dogs (and the occasional ferret) in tiny clothes living in an over-the-top doggy mansion. The account hit over 100,000 followers this week, and Paris is pretty pleased.
Kardashian/Jenner kids surprise mama Kris with not one, but TWO vintage cars for Christmas.
One 1956 Thunderbird would be an over-the-top give for us to even fathom giving or receiving, but TWO vintage vehicles? That’s just how you roll when you’re in the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
Bella Hadid takes a #privatejet.
We’re pretty sure this post is sponsored…and by sponsored, we do of course mean, in all likelihood, paid for NOT by Bella Hadid. This Jet Lux Life account has been making a pretty decent business of flying around the tastemakers of the world. Bella Hadid is just the latest. We’re pretty sure you’re next, aren’t you?
And sister Gigi thinks that’s so cool, she posts a picture of it, too.
Do you get discounts on stuff when your sister regrams your pics? Like, say you’re flying for free on a private jet — does it get more free if your sister, who has a MASSIVE online following, posts another picture of you boarding the plane? We’re pretty sure that’s what happened here. That, or Gigi is just really happy for her sis.
And on the note of flying private, Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick pose for a pic on the wing of their plane.
We’ve never been allowed near the exterior of the planes we board, but the reality TV pair have different rules than we do. Sure it looks cool, but do they get Champagne service out there? Oh, they do? Of course…
They also took the time to make a Boomerang… just two more minutes, Mr. Pilot, Sir!
Annnd once inside, had a group sing-along (to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star) in said chartered aircraft. The last time we started singing out loud on a flight, we ended up in a separate security line once we landed. At least that was private…
