And George Clooney also comes along for the ride from LA to New York

David and Victoria Beckham were treated to a ride on Giorgio Armani‘s private jet at the weekend.

The couple were joined by George Clooney, 46, to fly 2,800 miles from LA to New York ahead of the star-studded Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala on Monday night.

Posh and Becks, 33, are said to have had a hoot as they sipped on Cristal champagne during the flight.

‘George was only recently introduced to the Beckhams but they hit it off straight away,’ says a source. ‘He totally digs Victoria’s dry, very British sense of humour and gets her jokes, which a lot of Americans don’t.

‘They went out for dinner the evening before their flight but the trio really bonded on the plane, swapping gossip and doing hilarious impressions,’ the source tells the Daily Mirror.

After the gala – where Victoria, 34, was criticised for her white, 80s-style Armani frock – the group went clubbing at the infamous Bungalow 8.
