I am not a fan of the Kardashian’s. Thankfully, being UK based, the Kardashian’s haven’t intruded into British households to quite the extent that they have attempted to in the US.

That said, I have heard about them, something about a woman (& associated family) with a trendily large behind who makes a great deal of money filming every aspect of her life. When I found out that she had videoed her most recent private jet trip on a Boeing 747 I couldnt resist a look.

She shares her tour of the aircraft. Showing off the master suite with private bathroom along with another room which looks more like the Business Class section of a standard carrier.

What gets to me about the video is that Kim Kardishan is desperate to tell her watchers that the flight is “no big deal” (even though she considers the no bid deal worth filming and posting on her instagram), whilst blowig a ridiculous amount of money on a single flight.

One estimate suggests it would cost as much as $200,000 per flight hour to charter this aircraft. As the cost to operate a 747 is closer to $25k an hour, if they paid $200,000 they were paying over the odds.

The sheer indulgence of spending whatever eye-watering fee they spent on this flight when there is so much famine and sadness in the world is beyond my comprehension. Even at 1 million, just imagine the good you could do with this amount of money.

Sadly the video is fairly dreadful! For a start it is videoed in portrait not landscape! Do these people really make money filming their lives? Beyond this you do get an idea of what’s inside. Mainly a double bed room, smart bathroom and a lot of unneccessary space. The video is pretty appauling.

Watch, judge (I have!), and then spend your own money better. Travel to the sunshine, spread the holiday love, and if you have £1million to waste, please consider doing some good with it.
