Obamas high-class staff prefers economy class travelNovember 17th, 2008 - 6:30 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Nov 17 (ANI): While President-elect Barack Obama is all set to take the highest office in the United States, his team still prefers to travel in the economy class.
Obama’’s chief-of-staff, Rahm Emanuel was spotted travelling on a US Airways flight from Chicago to DC on Nov 13.
The man, considered Obamas right hand, had many passengers gaping at him with surprise.
“He was in a suit, multitasking with a BlackBerry in one hand, mobile phone in the other, reading the Wall Street Journal, and went straight to an article on Sarah Palin,” The New York Post quoted a source as saying.
The source also said that Emanuel, who traveled with one assistant, said into his phone, “Who would you choose? . . . As long as you”ve got my back!” (ANI)
