The only way to fly, end of story: Flying first class these days doesn’t just mean gourmet meals, lots of free booze and seats that don’t cripple you. Some airlines also ensure that the one-percenters never come into contact with the hoi polloi, even at the airport.

However, elite travelers can opt to downgrade to coach if they spot Donald Trump in the first-class cabin.

And no car elevator, either: The Mormon Church is setting the record straight: members of the faith will not get their own planet in the afterlife, a misconception popularized by the Broadway show “The Book of Mormon.”
