Hollywood actors will have to give up flying first class under a new cost-cutting agreement, which will force them to mix with ordinary holidaymakers in the cheap seats. Movie studio bosses met with union officials this week in a bid to hammer out a money-saving plan, and they agreed to slash stars' travel costs in return for improved pay rates, health insurance and pension contributions.

The new rules are expected to come into force next year and will see stars forced to travel in coach class for journeys less than 994 miles or between Los Angeles and New York or Canada. For longer trips, actors will be able to upgrade to first class, but only if no business class seats are available.

The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists struck the tentative deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, according to the Los Angeles Times.
