KIM Kardashian has come under fire for taking her multimillion-dollar private jet on a 17-minute flight, covering just 35 miles, while producing 2 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
According to online flight trackersthe quick ride between two neighboring Southern California towns, totaled about 145 gallons of jet fuel, at a cost of $914.
On Reddit, fans couldn’t believe the reality star would take such an environmentally harmful trip.
“Camarillo to Van Nuys is a 40-60 minute drive,” one person said. “If she really needed to save time, a helicopter would have more than sufficed.”
While another agreed: “Environmental destruction > 40 minute drive I guess?”
A follower asked how the whole family wasn’t ostracized for their behaviors: “The Kardashian family’s environmental destruction is unfathomable.
“Stealing is one of the worst things you can do to the planet.
“Why don’t people call them for the impact they are having on the climate crisis?”
Yet one fan had simply had enough: “I never want to see Kim EVER post anything about our climate. What a disgusting display.”
Kim has been ramping up her friendly sky flights recently, taking her fancy new plane on several cross-country trips from her California home to East Coast stops in Orlando or Washington, D.C.

And often trips are for personal pleasures.
Kim courted controversy last weekend when she flew to Orlando, where she and boyfriend Pete Davidson were spotted leaving tourist hotspot Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
The famous attraction houses the iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore when she sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday at Madison Square Garden in 1962.
And fans took to Reddit with their theories that the trip could be related to her attire for the upcoming Met Gala.
A few days earlier, Kim and Pete, 28, flew to Washington, DC, for a romantic evening and an awards show.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum and The King of Staten Island star were among many celebrity guests who visited the Kennedy Center in the US capital on Sunday.
They attended the 23rd annual Mark Twain Awards for Humor, where comedian Jon Stewart was honored.
FANS HAVE GROWED
And again, Reddit fans were beside themselves.
“I used to hear about climate change and cared about it since I was a kid,” one fan commented. “I feel so deflated at how little people who MATTER care.”
And one fan lashed out at Kim’s apologists: “It hurts my stomach that so many people are blindly defending this woman who literally would never have spat on them if they were on fire.”
NO PLAIN PLAN
In February, the Hulu star bought his brand new plane, which seats around 18 guests and is rumored to cost nearly $150 million.
The jet was named “Kim Air” and guests were greeted with a welcome mat bearing the name when they boarded the plane.
They had a luxurious breakfast sitting at tables decorated with textured nude placemats and cream vases with roses.
While Kim lost millions to buy the plane, maintaining the G650ER will also come at a significant cost.
For every 200 hours spent flying per year, the TV star would have to spend $400,000 on fuel costs and another $100,000 on maintenance.
