10 Celebs Who Always Travel In Style (10 Celebs Who Travel Like Normal People)

Being an A-list celebrity for sure comes with its share of pretty sweet perks. Among them, traveling by private jet is one of the ultimate status symbols. Whether it be industrialists, movie stars, or media tycoons, what separates these elite members from us common folk, has to be their quality of life. They can jet around the globe to their various mansions in comfort, whenever they want and in total privacy, avoiding the hassles of flying in cramped quarters with the common folk.

However, all celebrities are not created equal. True, the bulk of them may have great hair and symmetrical faces, but some of them actually have things in common with regular people, too. Case in point: there are celebs who have been known to fly commercial. There are still some stars who are willing to brave the airport, long queues, cramped seats and a plethora of adoring fans asking for selfies and autographs, instead of taking, say, a private jet. Just imagine if, on your next flight, a famous person tripped down the aisle, held up the line shoving his carry-on into the overhead bin, then slumped down right next to you. With some of our celebrities, it could happen so be sure to act cool when it does.

Here, are 10 celebs who always travel in style and 10 who don’t mind traveling like normal people

20 Beyoncé And Jay-Z - In Style

StyleCaster

From the projects to a private jet. We’re guessing this is what you get for the man who has everything, right? Shawn Carter now boasts of being the owner of a private jet. That's because the rapper and businessman got a private jet as a gift from his wife Beyoncé. Beyoncé is said to have bought Jay a jet for Father's Day. Nice! Carter is so taken with his jet he wants others to have a shot at flying private and recently invested in JetSmarter, the Uber for private jets. Nothing but the best from Bey; after all, she is the Queen. (Source: Forbes)

19 Blake Lively - Normal

Blake Lively is known for more than being the wife of Hollywood funny man, Ryan Reynolds; she is also a silver screen heavyweight in her own respect. Since her days on Gossip Girl, she has risen to become one of the mainstay names in Hollywood. With all that fame and glamour, this A-List star still flies coach. Yep. Blake is often seen flying commercial with her daughter James in tow. She, however, has a little problem with flying economy; she recently complained to Jimmy Fallon that it was torture for her to be flying and every screen in the plane is showing her husband [Ryan Reynold] getting cozy with another woman in Deadpool.

If you have ever thought that a career is reality television does not pay, the photo of Kim Kardashian flying in her private jet to an unknown destination will shake you from that reality. The TV star and a name that resides on everyone’s lips in Hollywood boasts of traveling in class, whether it is to a holiday destination with the rest of the Kardashian Klan, or if it is for business meetings in New York City. Reality pays! As if we don’t know how opulent her life is already, Kim is said to never fly public and is always seen jetting off on spontaneous getaways with little North West in tow.

17 Alec Baldwin - Normal

Via twitter.com

Of course, no list of celebrity commercial flyers would be complete without a shout-out to the OG, Alec Baldwin. The 30 Rockstar, in spite of his towering Hollywood status, still likes to indulge in the simple (dis)pleasure of taking commercial flights compared to buying or renting out a private jet. I think we can say that he thoroughly prefers it, even after his unceremonious eviction from an American Airlines flight a few years ago. For those who do not know, Alec Baldwin was evicted from the flight because he was allegedly caught playing Words with Friends during takeoff. Lucky for us, he kept his sense of humor throughout the debacle. (Source: YouTube)

16 Taylor Swift - In Style

Apart from making chart-topping hits, most of which are dedications to her estranged, and high profile former flames, Taylor Swift is known for having made all our #SquadGoals come true. The "Wildest Dreams" singer boasts 20 or more girlfriends in her "squad" and is notorious for pulling her friends up onstage and for being in constant contact with them. Another perk that comes with being part of Miss Swift’s squad, is getting to share a private jet ride or two on the singer’s aircraft. Taylor is not one for commercial flights, preferring the luxury and privacy that private jets provide. (Source: Mom)

15 Caitlyn Jenner - Normal

Caitlyn Jenner has this uncanny ability to make news wherever she goes. When she is not bashing You-Know-Who, she is hanging out with Hillary Clinton. Granted she is part of the Kardashian-Jenner Klan, a family known for making the news, even if it mostly for controversial reasons. Not only does Caitlyn Jenner like to fly commercial, she also likes to pose with attendants for pics and share on social media, because she’s Caitlyn like that. She is also in the process of earning her official pilot’s license! Keep your eyes peeled, folks, because Captain Jenner might be commanding your next flight. (Source: Twitter)

14 Floyd Mayweather - In Style

Bad Left Hook

He is arguably the richest boxer, and athlete alive today. So rich that we have unanimously adopted the word “Money” to be his middle name. Floyd boasts an array of high-performance sports cars, mansions, and Las Vegas escapades; all from his lucrative fights and unbeaten streak. The retired boxer recently bought himself a jet to celebrate his 41st birthday. Known for flaunting his wealth at every opportune moment, it is no wonder that Floyd has probably forgotten what it is like to fly commercial. And we don’t hold it against him; we would too if we were rich like that. (Source: DailyMail)

13 Claire Danes - Normal

Via youtube.com

After scoring a Screen Actor’s Guild Award in 2011 for her role in Temple Grandin, Danes confided to Extra that she had to take a red-eye flight back to NYC that very same night — flying coach, no less. Technically, it was the only seat left, but that Danes still designed to take it—after the 2011 SAG Awards, no less—says a lot about her. She said that it was because she had to be back at work in the morning, and that is why she had to take the flight. She would run to the hotel to shower and be on set because she was still shooting for a project at the time.

12 Mariah Carey - In Style

Via vanityfair.com

Mariah Carey is a diva’s diva. So much so that she does not think it an insult to be called a diva. She is known for taking the word "diva" as a compliment. She struts this title in everything she does, and that includes how she travels. Even former husband Nick Cannon was so impressed by the assets that his wife owned, that he was quoted saying on Instagram that he thought he was fly in his Lamborghini until they pulled up to her plane. When you think about it, he does seem to have a point. When Mimi does things, she does them well. (Source: DailyMail)

11 Jessica Alba - Normal

Are you looking for another reason to adore Jessica Alba’s travel style (besides her on-flight selfies)? Well, you are about to get another. Not only does the actress and mom to Honor and Haven prefer to fly commercial, she's been known to take a backseat in economy while her kids get the first-class treatment. We think she wants to be a good role model for her kids. Traveling from L.A. to New York City, Alba and her husband reportedly slummed it in the back, while their daughter and her nanny enjoyed free drinks and slightly less punishing conditions in first class.

10 Kylie Jenner - In Style

glosty

Kylie Jenner is probably the most well-traveled 19-year-old in history. Flying out for her family’s reality TV show, or for business regarding her cosmetics line or just for holiday and fun, Kylie shows us that there is no place like a private luxury jet for a little escapade from the masses. Whether she is traveling alone or with her big sister Khloe, the cosmetics guru proves that indeed luxury never hurt anybody. Unlike her supermodel sister Kendall, who occasionally flies commercial, Kylie is yet to be spotted trying to stuff her bag into the overhead bin of a commercial aircraft.

9 Katie Holmes - Normal

The A-List actress and daughter Suri, now 10 years old, notoriously fly commercial whenever they visit Holmes' parents in their hometown of Toledo, Ohio. Suri’s first experience with a normal life came in 2012 when she flew without her daddy’s private jet. She is daddy’s girl alright, but her mum, Kate Holmes, is making a habit of making her experience normal life away from her star-studded last name. Even cuter about the experience, the adorable duo is known to stop and shop at the local Target as they make their way home. That is as normal as normal can get. (Source: DailyMail)

8 Drake - In Style

Sorry, Drake can't hear you over all his luxury, and we definitely believe it is God’s plan. The Canadian rapper has been among the highest earning rappers in the recent years, with hit singles and albums that can really hold their own. This makes it easy for him to afford all the luxury that money can buy. Drake never flies commercial, preferring a private jet for himself and his OVO crew. We have a feeling that no matter how cold the rapper's destination might be, the wind chill would probably not sting. Knowing him, he probably has a heated Escalade waiting to pick him up on the tarmac. (Source: VladTV)

7 Brad And Angelina - Normal

Via people.com

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are two of the world's most famous people, even though they are no longer together. But it's clear the Hollywood stars like to keep things as down-to-earth as possible for themselves and their brood of six children. The former couple — who are parents to Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne — blew the minds of commercial flyers everywhere when they flew the entire brood coach to their summer home in France last year. The Brangelina Bunch all loaded onto a flight from Paris to Nice that didn't separate customers by the cost of their tickets. (Source: DailyMail)

6 Gigi Hadid - In Style

Via seventeen.com

Gigi is definitely one of the people to follow if you are looking for ways to take the mundanity out of travel. She is constantly providing us with inspiration for epic travel tales, what with her killer ensembles and bouncy tresses. Whether jetting off to Paris fashion week or vacationing with her sister and pals in Jamaica, Gigi doesn’t let anything cramp her style, and that includes long-haul flights. When it comes to private jet fashion, Gigi’s got the whole casual-chic look down pat. But note, it is private jet fashion. The Hadids do not do coach; because it does not allow the antics they are normally up to. (Source: DailyMail)

5 Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - Normal

grammy

The Seattle rapper, born Benjamin Haggerty, Macklemore is considered to be arguably the biggest white rapper since Eminem (No offense Eazy). Together with his producer and co-creative genius Ryan Lewis, the two shot to fame with their critically acclaimed LP The Heist with hits like Thrift Shop and Can't Hold Us. The fame, and fortune, that came with the success of their record did not, however, change everything about their lifestyle. Mack is known to fly commercial, as was stated in their Rolling Stones profile which said that they usually flew coach and that their destination was a Holiday Inn Express.

4 Paris Hilton - In Style

Paris Hilton likes to show off what she’s got. Why wouldn’t she? She is after all the heir to one of the biggest hotel franchises in the world. The elite star has shown off her decadent Hollywood mansion in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, and then went a step ahead and struck a pose to show off her private jet. It seems as though Paris was not satisfied with showing off just the home, but wanted the world to see more than just her palatial pad. Paris does not fly commercial, okay except that one time. She has her own private bird which can take her to whichever part of the globe the party is at. (Source: DailyMail)

3 Kate Moss - Normal

Via variety.com

Kate Moss is one of the celebrities who prove that A-listers are just like us in many ways. Yes, she flies coach, and yes, she was ejected from one. In 2015, the British goddess set tabloids on fire when it was reported that she had been removed from a plane. The 44-year-old supermodel was removed from an EasyJet flight from Turkey to London for allegedly being "disruptive." There were no formal complaints but Kate Moss reportedly insulted the pilot, causing her to be escorted off the plane by police. That is Kate Moss for you. (Source: Refinery29)

2 Selena Gomez - In Style

Via glamour.com

Selena Gomez holds the record as the most-followed person on Instagram. This just means that fans and friends alike, cannot get enough of her. She is a mega pop star and actress and this translates to moneybags rolling in through her front door. Because of her status, she can afford to travel about in style in her very own private jet. It would also not be prudent for her to fly commercial, as she would cause the whole airport to come to a standstill. Even though few mere mortals can relate to her jet-set life, she finds creative ways to include all 82-plus millions of her fans. (Source: Mom.me)

1 Amy Adams - Normal

Amy Adams stole her way into our hearts in Man of Steel. The award-winning actress is also known for flying commercial. She went viral when she traded her first-class seat with a U.S. soldier who was flying economy on a Delta flight to LAX. She was boarding a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles on Friday when she noticed a serviceman among the passengers. Once on board, she traded seats with the serviceman, taking his seat in economy and even taking a selfie with her new seatmate. When the news went viral and the internet went berserk, the Batman v. Superman star told Inside Edition that it was something she’d “always wanted to do.”
