Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, reportedly recently shocked passengers on a plane simply with their mere presence. Why? Because they made the decision to purchase an economy ticket for their trip to Armenia rather than flying in first class.
As you can imagine, other passengers on the plane were shocked and startled upon seeing the power couple sidling up to the relatively cheap seats. And when the pair decided to capture a quick nap on the plane, people then attempted to capture snaps of the pair.
One of these images was upload to @milesnewlove, who insisted that the image depicted the pair flying economy to Armenia.

Even though the pair look rather comfortable in their economy seating, which it’s believed would have cost them just over a $1,000 a seat, it’s rather shocking that they reverted to purchasing these cheaper chairs when they’re worth around $210 million between them.
This isn’t the first time that Kanye West has been captured taking a snooze on a mode of transport with one of the Kardashians. Just last month, the rapper was photographed catching a nap while lying next to Kris Jenner on a Eurostar train from London to Paris.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made the journey to Armenia with their daughter, North West, and Kim’s younger sister, Khloe Kardashian. But when they arrived, their cheapness ground to a halt as they rented out two floors at the capital city Yerevan’s fanciest hotel.
One individual who was particularly pleased that two members of the Kardashians made their way to Armenia was the country’s prime minister, Hovik Abrahamyan. Kim took to Instagram to post an image of West and herself with Abrahamyan, alongside the caption, “It was an honour to meet the Prime Minister of Armenia, Hovik Abrahamyan who expressed how proud they are that we are proud Armenians and we have not forgotten our roots!”
However, there seemed to be one issue that annoyed Abrahamyan, the fact that the Kardashians couldn’t speak Armenian. This was something that they apologized to the Prime Minister for. According to the Express, a government official released a statement that read, “The Kardashians apologised for not speaking Armenian but said they are learning their native language.”
