HUMILITY: Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie shun First Class luxury as they fly ECONOMY with their six children


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are two of the world's most famous people.
But it's clear the Hollywood stars like to keep things as down-to-earth as possible for themselves and their brood of six children.
The famous family shunned a private jet or even the luxury of First Class in order to take a normal approach to travelling as they piled into an Air France plane on Saturday, going from the US to France, landing in Paris before taking a domestic trip down to Nice.

It was on the second leg of their journey that the Jolie-Pitts were seen blending in with their fellow passengers on the aircraft. 
The 40-year-old actress and 51-year-old actor were seen leaving Los Angeles International airport, leading the way as their kids - Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, ten, Shiloh, nine and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - held hands while heading through the terminal.

They looked just like any other family as they made their way to check in for the flight, before climbing aboard the liner.
But it was the middle part of their trip - as they landed in Paris before switching onto a connecting flight to head to Nice in the South of France - that really showed them to be like any ordinary family unit.

Instead of travelling First Class in the lap of luxury like many of their peers, Brad, Angelina and the kids took their seats in the rows of the plane in the Economy section.
Brad and Angelina were also seen putting their hand luggage into the overhead storage, while their children settled down for the short flight from the French capital to the Cote d'Azur location. 
And, before hopping onto the domestic flight, the family waited for two hours at Charles de Gaulle Airport along with other passengers.

Sleek travelling style: Angelina, 40, kept it simple for her trip from Los Angeles to Paris and Nice, in black trousers, t-shirt and blazer


Those Jolie-Pitts, they're just like us. Sort of.
They may have decided to travel economy on a flight from Paris to Nice but Angelina was in no way dressed like the masses she was sharing the plane with. In her signature look of skinny Saint Laurent cigarette trousers and blazer styled with a simple tee (all black of course) she's was as A-list as usual.
And on her fashionable feet was a pair of the now iconic Chloé 'Lauren' flats complete with scalloped edging. In nude they're a versatile shoe that can be worn with everything from denim to dresses.
And Angelina isn't the only stylish star to own a pair. We've spotted them on Emma Stone, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Liv Tyler just to name a few. So why not upgrade your ballet flats and click (right) to join this celebrity fan club?

Spot the star! Brad, 51, was almost able to go unrecognised in his simple t-shirt, sunglasses and hat
They certainly blended in with their fellow travellers as they made their way south towards Nice, before getting off and leaving the airport together as a family unit after their long-haul two-part journey from Los Angeles.
Maleficent star Angelina looked casual in her low-key, jet-set attire of a simple black t-shirt, tailored trousers and a sleek blazer.
She wore her long brunette tresses down and covered her face with a pair of shades.
Meanwhile, Brad attempted to go incognito with a tight-fitting purple t-shirt, sunglasses and a fedora, his ever-changing beard short and giving him a salt-and-pepper appearance.

The kids were kitted in their casual gear for their flight, each of them showing off their unique styles, with Pax showing that he's been inspired by his mother's love of tattoos with fake tribal art up his arms.
In-keeping with their fuss-free travels, the group were not accompanied by a bodyguard, and just one of their nannies: they famously employ several childminders to help them with their large family.
In 2012, it was reported they took as many as '12 nannies' with them on a Caribbean holiday.

After disembarking from the second flight, the family were escorted though the airport - each of them toting their own hand luggage, a few of the youngsters laden with their backpacks - as they got into a large car to continue their journey on land. 
Brad, Angelina and the children were perhaps visiting the couple's wine château - Château Miraval - in the village of Correns that they have been leasing since 2008 and which they usually travel to on a private jet.
It's the very same location they famously tied the knot last year, and a favoured destination of the Jolie-Pitts when taking time off from their busy schedules.
