Beyonce Knowles and husband Jay-Z

Beyonce Knowles insists she still flies economy class when she travels all over the world

Beyonce Knowles still flies economy class.

The 'Crazy in Love' singer - who along with husband Jay-Z is worth millions of dollars - insists she doesn't mind shunning the elite seats to sit with the general public when she travels.

She is quoted as saying: "Even now I sometimes fly economy if I need to. We had a storm in Miami and there was a hurricane coming so we just got out.

"You know the airlines where if you're fifth in line, you sit in seat five? And then they throw a peanut at you with your drink? I don't care about those kind of things."

However, the 27-year-old star admitted there are some reasons why she prefers first class, including a greater degree of privacy.

Beyonce - who recently travelled to Japan for a promotional appearance with her sister Solange - added: "It's just that people don't give me peace in economy, that's the hardest thing."
