When celebs fly, you expect them to ride first class or else charter a jet.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, arguably the most powerful couple in Hollywood, proved they were one of us, however, as they ditched the luxury of first class and, along with their six kids, flew economy on a flight to France this past Saturday, the Daily Mail reports

The family took an Air France flight from Los Angeles to Paris. Pitt and Jolie remained relatively unnoticed, donning sunglasses as a disguise, on their flight. It was on their connecting flight from Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport to Nice when the family traveled economy.
Pitt, 51, and Jolie, 40, employed no bodyguards on each flight, nor a legion of nannies. They took only one nanny to take care of their six children: Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 9, and 6-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
And just like regular people, the family waited for two hours with other passengers at Charles de Gaulle to take their next leg to their destination, forgoing the usual stay in luxury rooms for frequent flyers. On their economy flight, the family loaded their own luggage in the storage overhead as passengers kept taking pictures of them. But, while up in the air, the economy passengers left them alone, and the family blended right in and seemed like an ordinary family taking a vacation.
The family carried their own luggage and backpacks after the second leg of their flight landed and were seen getting into a car to continue to their destination, perhaps to Château Miraval, the couple’s wine château, located in the village of Correns, which Pitt and Jolie have been leasing since 2008 and which they usually get to using a private jet.
But maybe we shouldn’t be surprised about the couple’s low-key traveling, as the family is known to be down-to-earth. After all, Pitt and Jolie have always claimed they wanted normal lives
for their children. And besides, no one is too good for economy; we all take it, even super rich passengers like Pitt and Jolie.
