Bill and Hillary Clinton have flown private or on the taxpayer dime for decades. After Hillary’s 2016 election loss, however, that streak is coming to an abrupt end. The former first couple shocked fellow passengers as they flew commercial from Washington, D.C., to New York City.

Other passengers on the Delta flight snapped photos and videos of the Clintons. In one video, Bill can be seen shaking hands in the terminal as a sunglasses-clad Hillary looks on from the corner. Another shows the two Clintons reading in their seats as other passengers board the plane for takeoff.

One passenger, Kaitlyn Potter, tweeted a selfie of her and Mrs. Clinton, saying, “I guess you could say I’ve had a pretty good start to my internship here in D.C. considering I just ran into the Clintons at the airport *Bill Clinton not pictured* lol.”

In the videos, casual members of the Secret Service can be seen around the Clintons.

The Clintons were flying from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to the Washington Examiner.

Correction: A previous headline described the Clintons as flying in coach. That phrasing has been changed to “commercial” to match the copy.
