Justin Timberlake and other stars ditch private jets for Southwest

It's official: Private air travel is as uncool as taking your mom to prom. After congress scolded the auto industry for taking the costly private jets to DC to request their bailout money it was only a matter of time before the move to ditch private flights caught on. TMZ is reporting that both Justin Timberlake and Brad Pitt have been spotted rubbing elbows on Southwest airlines flights in lieu of the private jets they normally use for cross country jaunts.

Pitt and Timberlake aren't the only stars flying with the commoners, just yesterday we reported that one member of British Royal Family has taken to flying coach after a positive experience in the cramped armrests last month. Now that it's hip to be cheap we may see even more celebs dropping their plush private jets for a seat on Southwest.
