(Newser) – No more slumming it in the air for Donald Trump: The real estate mogul gave the New York Post a tour of his modest little $100 million private plane before taking it on its inaugural flight from New York to DC. The overhauled Boeing 757 seats 43 very comfortably and sports a wealth of ornate features.

The plane—refurbished by Trump after buying it from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen last fall—has suede ceilings, gold-leaf everything, and a main cabin with several rows of plush seats and couches, flat-screen TVs, and boardroom tables. Trump's private suite includes a bedroom, two closets, huge TV, work desk, and a bathroom—complete with circular shower—decked out in gold detailing. (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
