Palin flew coach as Governor?

Yeah, I know has suddenly become All Palin All the Time, but you know, she’s really a fascinating American story.

This blogger[*1] met her at the New Orleans airport this past April:

We chatted about Florida and Barrow, Alaska and flying commercial. She said she really enjoys and prefers flying with people who either live in or are visiting Alaska. She even flies coach! She was kind enough to take several photos with me.

Emphasis added.  I can’t conceive of another State Governor flying coach.  In my own limited personal experience with state chief executives, Governors tend to be “do as I say, not as I do” kinds of people.
