The Hill reports:
Monday’s flight to Cleveland, Ohio reportedly marks the first time Hillary Clinton will be on the same plane as her press corps.
Dan Merica, a political producer at CNN Politics, tweeted that the plane is a 14-year-old Boeing 737 that used to fly for Air Berlin, Orenair and Corendon Dutch Airlines.
Liz Kruetz, of ABC news, tweeted that the plane has four cabins – one for Clinton and a few aides, one for extra staff, one for secret service and one with 40-plus seats for press.
On Twitter, people began suggesting nicknames for Clinton’s new ride, which has her campaign slogan “Stronger Together” plastered on its side.
