Kanye West caused a flight delay and didn't even bother apologising for it

2014-11-27 12:00

Los Angeles - Kanye West delayed an aeroplane flight and refused to apologise to fellow passengers.

The hip-hop superstar was travelling from Paris, France to Helsinki, Finland on Tuesday and despite boarding the plane late, he declined the chance to apologise for holding up the other passengers.

An eye witness explained: "The whole flight was waiting on one of those buses that ferries passengers from the gate to the plane. Kanye and his assistant boarded in a huff.

"The assistant sprinted to the bus from the gate with all of the travel documents, while Kanye walked casually behind him. They did not apologise for keeping everyone."

When the 37-year-old rapper - and husband of Kim Kardashian West - finally took his seat, he also refused to have his photo taken with a European couple.

The source told the New York Post's Page Six column: "He initially seemed to say yes, but then pointed at the line of passengers behind them waiting to board and declined ... mostly through hand gestures. He was almost mute. He was not talkative at all."

However, Kanye's mood seemed to improve in time.

The insider said: "When another couple passed his seat, the man said, 'Hi Mr. West,' causing Kanye to look up. The man continued, 'I really liked your album, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - I mean, College Dropout. It gave me confidence in college.'

"When the fan offered a fist bump, Kanye paused briefly before returning the bump and telling him, 'Thanks.'"
