Accompanying her beau Richie Sambora, a presenter at Nashville's CMT Awards, Denise Richards boarded an American Airlines flight late Tuesday morning.
The couple sat in first class, across the aisle from comedian Tom Arnold, another presenter at the show.
Both sans sunglasses, "Denise sported a simple white T-shirt and had minimal makeup on, if any at all," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Sambora was in his usual all-black rocker chic gear."
While boarding, "Richie typed on his phone, occasionally showing Denise, who would smile," the source says. "During the flight, Richie read the newspaper. The pair looked very happy together."

They're back on! Denise Richards and Richie Sambora celebrated a friend's birthday at the newly opened Rosa Mexicano in West Hollywood.

Guests including Megan Fox and husband Brian Austin Green shared a round of the restaurant's famous frozen pomegranate margaritas. When it was time to go, Greene and Richards slipped out the back door to avoid the paparazzi. – Liza Hamm

Richie Sambora got a vote of confidence from his bandmates in Bon Jovi as he takes a temporary break from the tour, reportedly to enter a treatment center.
"Our support for Richie is absolute," Bon Jovi says in a statement Thursday. "He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi. Although he will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being, we very much look forward to his healthy return. In the meantime, we will keep our commitment to our fans and continue our tour."
The band, whose next stop is April 30 in New Orleans, did not cite a reason for Sambora's absence. But online reports say the guitarist, 52, is getting rehab for his sobriety and exhaustion. – Joey Bartolomeo

Richie Sambora is looking for his Mrs. Right – or at least Mrs. Right, for now.
"I'm on a search for my future ex-wife," the Bon Jovi guitarist, 51, told PEOPLE at the N.Y.C. Fashion Week Style 360 afterparty for his line, White Trash Beautiful.
All joking aside, Sambora – whose 2006 split from Heather Locklear came after 11 years of marriage – is ready to settle down, which can only mean one thing: more kids.

Heather Locklear acknowledged she's endured a "tough" year – marked by a DUI and treatment for depression and anxiety – but said her life is back on track.
"I've been better, but I'm good today," Locklear, 47, said Wednesday on The Tonight Show. "Here I am, safe and sound."
Asked by Jay Leno if she would have done anything differently this year, she joked, "I would have stayed in my house."
But she said that although she learned "hard lessons," she "wouldn't have done anything differently because, here I am today, happy and healthy, and lessons are to learn."
