Kanye Gets High ... On a Budget

4/24/2008 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West, PharrellTMZ spies spotted Kanye West and Pharrell at LAX airport this morning ... on a Southwest flight to Tucson, Ariz.. Ding -- you are now free to lose your street cred!

Was first class booked on EVERY OTHER AIRLINE?!?!? Or, for that matter, a sweet private jet? Is that really the best Kanye's travel site could do?

Let's hope they were at least in Group A.

Good for him. He's smart enough, and talented enough, to make some coin. He's even smarter not to waste it! I'm sure his mama would be proud!

Southwest Airlines is the ONLY US airline making money.

The other discounters are loosing millions, and the legacies are loosing billions.

Southwest has the least complaints.

Why not reward the only airline making money and isn't bankrupt or facing bankruptcy.

Randy Travis only travels on Southwest Airlines. I think it's because of the peanuts. They're so damn good.

I'll bet it's because he's black! The airline probably had plenty of seats left in first class! (hey, I had to say it before some other dumb ass said it).

Kanye and Pharrell both have millions. I'm sure they wanted to act humbled and decided to hop on SW ..OR..their flights got messed up last minute and they werent big crybabies demanding their own jets so took the next available flight through southwest? You guys are always talking about Kanye having this ego and being a big whiner...he's doing something very ordinary and is now getting laughed at? he couldve bought every seat on the flight if he wanted to. get over it.

and to the person who said his mother "only" had 150,000....that does not mean she wasnt living the life with all expenses paid by Kanye. He bought her a big house AND I guarantee she had a credit card that she bought the world with and he foot the bill for it.

Just because they have $$$$$ doesn't mean they have to spend it . Perhaps they are just down to earth performers that don't mind rubbing elbows with the people that helped make them famous.
If you want to keep your fortune, you make wise decisions like taking cheaper flights to cut costs.

Thanks guys for not spoiling the earth with an unnecessary private jet. By the way, Tucson has a small airport and the major airline that flies from LAX to Tucson is Southwest so it makes sense they would fly this airline even though it's the no frills way to fly.
