That’s why fellow passengers were shocked to see the billionaire real estate mogul/TV personality saunter aboard Monday’s JetBlue Flight 39 from JFK Airport in New York to West Palm Beach, according to a New York Daily News report.

A Trump spokesman told the News that flying commercial made sense because Donald’s 727 was already in Palm Beach.

Trump’s vintage Boeing 727 has been up for sale for over a year now, apparently without success. About a week ago, word began spreading around the internet, based on witness reports and FAA records, that Trump had purchased one of Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen’s private 757s (N757AF).
