Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't believe in the art of being subtle. The over-the-top couple has done it again by renting out a gigantic 600-passenger private Boeing 747 plane just for themselves and their team. The jet was so outrageous that even the KKW Beauty founder was in disbelief when she shared videos of it on her Instagram Stories.

The reality TV star gave fans a tour of the inside of the double-decker plane but she first showed off how massive it was on the outside. She also gave her fans a look at the many features inside the plane, including multiple bedrooms and dining rooms, and it was insane. The couple seems to cause controversy with a lot of their choices, and the use of such a large aircraft for a small group was also heavily criticized by environmentally conscious fans on social media. 

Kim and her hubby casually boarded the airplane.

Kim was shocked at the luxury ride and let her fans know she had never been in a plane like that before. "No big deal," she says in the clip. "This is how he does it now, only 747s private. I've never even heard of this but whatever."

The couple walked around the plane, checking out all the rooms and ammenities inside. After Kim and her personal trainer, Melissa Alcantara, were settled inside the plane and started doing lounges up and down the aisle. Not only does Kim have her own home gym, now she has one aboard a private jet.

She shared a video of herself with a butterfly Snapchat filter, giving her husband props for coming up with this idea. "So this is what Kanye meant when he said he wanted his office in the sky. I thought it was kind of crazy but this is genius," she said in the clip.

The plane was fully equipped with plenty of rooms for the group to enjoy.

The plane had fully furnished bedrooms, a dining room and even an office for the rapper to handle his business. The Yeezy designer didn't look too impressed by the luxirious plane in the videos, which probably happens due to the fact that he's used to this type of lifestyle. While to them it was just a way to make a flight more pleasant, people on social media called them out for unnecessarily using such a big plane and hurting the environment.

People had plenty to say on Twitter about the couple's luxurious transportation choice.

Another user wrote, "So @KimKardashian & @kanyewest just boarded a private 747 only for themselves and their trainer. I guess working out in a plane is more important than the environment! Priorities kids!"

A lot of people were concerned with how flying the plane with just a few people inside would hurt the environment, which is ALREADY in a crisis.

The plane has the capacity to fit more than 600 passengers but it does require a lot of fuel to function, which is why they're not used unless it's for long flights. "The same week the climate report is released @KimKardashian and @kanyewest fly a freaking 747 jumbo jet privately. This is like finding out your prediabetic and then buying Costco sized candy bags. #wegottadobetter," another fan tweeted.

One Twitter user believed their actions are contradictory.

Kanye and Kim recently grabbed headlines for hiring private firefighters to protect their home during the California fires, which destroyed thousands of homes for others in the area. Many thought the move was insensitive and somewhat selfish on their part, even though they were also able to keep their neighbors' homes safe from the fires. The couple has since donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to families affected by the natural disaster which left some fans questioning why they would contradict their good deeds by renting the plane.

Not only is he living lavishly, Kanye has also been using his money to help others in need.

It was reported in August that the rapper might soon hit billionaire status due to the incredible success of his Yeezy brand, and he's sure living like it. On the plus side, he has been donating to several causes lately, including the $500,000 he gave toward to wildfire relief efforts, the $73,540 donation he gave to Chicago mayoral candidate Amara Enyia, as well as $150,000 to the family of a black security guard named Jemel Roberson who was shot and killed by a white police officer earlier this month. Life is about balance so we hope the famous couple finds theirs.
