Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attend the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on June 1, 2015 in New York City. 

Fans were outraged after Kim Kardashian posted an Instagram story showing off her and husband Kanye West boarding a private 747 jet. The videos show a spacious cabin, complete with multiple luxurious suites, but the couple and their trainer are the only ones aboard the plane.

In the video, Kardashian-West can be heard narrating, “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.” The plane reportedly can hold a capacity of up to 660 passengers, yet the Kardashian-West duo had it all to themselves.

Kardashian-West stated that "Team Adidas" gave West the plane for his Yeezy brand. Personal trainer Melissa Alcantara was also along for the ride so they could work out on the plane.

Fans expressed their anger on Twitter over the extravagant move, noting the impact something like this has on global warming and current climate issues.
