Geithner leads by example ... in coach

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says he never rides first class."]

(CNN) - As the government tries to curb corporate excess of companies receiving federal bailout money, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner appears to be leading by example.

The man who was grilled by Congress last week over the AIG bonuses took the Delta shuttle from New York to Washington on Saturday, riding in the coach section. Asked why not first class, Geithner said he always rides coach, "never first class".
