Ride in first class? Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker just flew on a commercial plane. The spotting comes a week after reports emerged that her sister Kylie Jenner used her private jet for 17 minutes.
TMZ reported that the newlywed couple flew to Spokane, Washington on August 6, 2022. Kourtney and Travis took an Alaskan Air trip from LAX to the Pacific Northwest with Kourtney’s daughter, Penelope Disick, and niece, North West. All wore their masks and hoodies. TMZ reports that Kourtney and Travis have a home in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Spokane is the closest airport.
The theft comes after Kylie Jenner received a backlash for her carbon footprint. The Kylie Cosmetics founder used her private jet for flights as short as 17 minutes, via the Twitter account @CelebJets. Yard, an analysis agency then produced a list of the biggest celebrities responsible for CO2 emissions. Among those on the list, however, are Kylie’s on-and-off boyfriend Travis Scott and her sister Kim Kardashian. According to Yard, Travis racked up “3,033.3 tonnes of CO2e this year alone, with an average flight distance of just 7.31 miles – the shortest average in the top 10.” Meanwhile, Kim’s jet, “emitted 4268.5 tonnes of carbon emissions over 57 flights: 609.8 times more than the average person emits in a year.

Khloé Kardashian also subtly shaded Taylor Swift for using her jet more than her family. The Good American founder liked an Instagram post shared by @KardashianSocial that suggested her mother, Kris Jenner, leaked the information that Taylor Swift uses her private jet the most of all celebrities. The Instagram post featured the caption, “Who leaked Taylor Swift’s private jet flew 170 this year?” The video then played a video in which Kris sits down for an interview and asks to introduce herself, in which she replies, “Kris f—king Jenner.”
Kravis’ flight also comes weeks after Travis was hospitalized on June 28, 2022. He was rushed to Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after seeking treatment at West Hills Hospital. On July 2, 2022, Travis posted an update on his Instagram Stories about why he was hospitalized. “I went for an endoscopy on Monday feeling fine. But, after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” he wrote. “During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe, life-threatening pancreatitis. I am so, very grateful that with intensive treatment, I am now much better.
Travis also recently returned to flying after being in a plane crash. In September 2008, Travis survived a plane crash that killed four out of six people on board, including Travis’ security guard, assistant and two pilots. Travis suffered third degree burns to 65% of his body and underwent 26 surgeries. The accident had a profound effect on his life. The drummer developed a fear of flying after the accident and he had to relearn how to walk and move. barker said men’s health in May 2021, “I was told that I was not going to run anymore because I had so many foot transplants, and there was even talk that I would never play the drums again. As soon as I could walk, I was able to run. As soon as I could move my hands and my hands healed, I played the drums. And now I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been.
Barker recently started flying again after being convinced by his now-wife, Kourtney Kardashian, to fly with her to Cabo, Mexico. He said Nylon in September 2021, “I made a deal with her that she just said to me, ‘I would so love to travel with you. I want to go to Italy with you. I want to go to Cabo with you. I want to go to Paris with you. I want to go to Bora Bora with you. And I said, ‘Well, the day you want to fly, I tell you that I will do it with you. I would do anything with you. And just give me 24 hours notice. And that’s what she did.” He then praised her for giving him courage. “It’s still something very new for me,” said he said, “but to have something that gives me strength and hope to be able to overcome things that have been so traumatic in my life, that says a lot.”
