I’m a wealth expert — here’s the one thing rich people do on a plane that poors don’t

Well, that’s rich.

A self-styled wealth expert has sparked a vigorous debate by claiming that people who fly first-class act differently — and somehow, better — than the commoners crammed into coach.

Shari Levitin, a “world-renowned sales trainer” who shares insights on the habits of successful CEOs, raised a ruckus with her now-viral video, which floats the theory that people of privilege work harder than the rest of us — even in mid-flight, when Levitin said they can typically be observed using their time in the air more productively.

“I can’t tell you how many people I see on a plane and they’re just, like, staring out into space,” she stated. “But you go into first class and people are reading, doing work. They are busy doing something,” Levitin declared.

“You will notice a big difference between people in first-class and those who are flying in coach,” she said.

“So the most important thing I can say about being rich is a lifestyle,” the expert continued. “You’re always growing, you’re always doing something that’s going to get you to that next level.”

Levitan concluded that “it takes execution” and it takes “doing the work” in order to be a wealthy first-class flier.

In the caption of her post, the “Heart and Sell” author clarified her comments, saying: “Of course this isn’t always the case. Plenty of smart people are productive in coach. But I do find most successful people prioritize learning, growing and they’re insatiably curious… Remember, success is 1% idea and 99% execution.”

However, numerous viewers were angered by what they perceived to be Levitan’s snobbish judgement, with one railing: “Give me a break. People in coach don’t read? How insulting.”

“Maybe because economy does not have space to open up the laptop and also no Wi-Fi!” another declared.

“I read 7 books in the last 3 months but I’m poor AF and fly Spirit Airlines,” a third critic commented.

Another claimed those in flying first-class aren’t necessarily rich and are working because they’re on company time.

“People in first-class are typically frequent fliers and travel for work,” they snapped.

Others claimed that the 1% rarely flew commercial and were not always working as they usually accumulated much of their wealth via “passive income.”

However, there were those who agreed with Levitan, including one who cheered: “She is so correct. I love it.”

“She’s 100% correct,” a second supporter insisted. “I can’t even explain how hard I work and how busy I am. I’ve met the most wealthy celebs and business people because of that energy.”
