Watch out for the diva! Mariah Carey demands entire first class cabin


Mariah Carey has booked an entire airplane cabin for £70 000 (R1 million). The Art of Letting Go singer is insistent on travelling in style and has ordered her aides to book the entire first class cabin on a British Airways flight when she goes to Cannes Film Festival next month. The 44-year-old star will travel from New York to Nice, France, for a hefty five-figure sum so other passengers don't bother her during the flight.

'She doesn't think twice about paying such a crazy amount’

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Over the years Mariah has grown accustomed to travelling in ultimate style so she doesn't think twice about paying such a crazy amount to ensure her privacy. At least she'll be able to stock up on the missing passengers' complimentary eye masks and hot towels. "

"Let's hope she doesn't demand that British Airways lays out fluffy carpets for her, kits out the upper deck with puppies and paints the interiors cream. To be honest, it would be cheaper for Mariah to just hire her own private jet."

Mariah - who has two-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with husband Nick Cannon - is no stranger to diva demands. In 2005, she famously requested a London hotel roll out a red carpet lined with candles for her late night arrival and refused to get out of her limousine until staff had done so.
