Back in May Prince William flew American Airlines coach. It was a bulkhead seat for Memphis – Dallas.
This morning he flew first class onboard the US Airways shuttle to get from New York to DC.
The ABC News article incorrectly indicates he flew from New York’s JFK airport. The shuttle flight originates at LaGuardia.
“Our flight was delayed and a caravan of black suburbans pulled up to the plane. Then the most unexpected guest stepped onto our DC shuttle flight this morning,” wrote Sam Kim in an Instagram post capturing the moment.
Presumably he chose US Airways over Delta for the flight because of his oneworld elite status via British Airways.
