Ivanka Trump sat in economy class when flying back from Pyeongchang following the closing ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympics on Sunday.
The first daughter and senior White House adviser said that she was “rolling commercial” following her trip to South Korea after leading the U.S. delegation in the Olympic closing ceremony, reported the New York Post. Her travel plans were revealed after an American snowboarder asked if he could fly on Air Force One.
Can I catch a ride back to the states on Air Force One?? https://t.co/ngiKbzmJjx

In response, Ivanka said that she is “rolling commercial” but also invited the Olympian to sit next to her on the U.S. return flight.
We’re rolling commercial, but you’re welcome to sit next me! Or come visit us at the White House anytime! Congrats! https://t.co/SzhHcuzVkA

This is not the first time Ivanka has rode commercial. The mother-of-three previously flew JetBlue, and a stranger publicly accosted her. The man implored why she was taking an economy flight over a private plane, reported The Hill.
