His company specialises in expediting travel-related paperwork such as passports and visas.

The executive commutes between two homes, one in Great Neck, New York, and the other in Boca Raton, Florida.

It goes without saying that David knows a thing or two about the jet-setting life.

Now the flying aficionado has shared his inside tips on how to make the most out of your flights, and one particular tip stood out.

Speaking to The Malaysian Reserve, the travel pro says he “usually wears his FBI hat to travel”.

He said: “I got it in Washington. I think there’s no doubt that it makes people look and wonder.

“And when they’re wondering, they err on the side of respect.

“I’m looking at everybody, and they’re looking back at me very carefully.”

David goes on to recount one particular memory where he wore his hat and a flight attendant thanked him for his “service”.

It went on to create an immediate rapport between the two which led to a more pleasant flight and experience.

He said: “The lovely flight attendant said, “Thank you for all you do.” And so, what else was I going to say? I just said, “You’re welcome. And the same thing to you.

“I think we both have very responsible positions, and you should not be second-rated for what you do.” 

The travel pro also recommended those jetting abroad to browse or join expat Facebook groups in your destination for local travel advice and insights. 

And he said that you should be the last one to board a plane so you can check out everybody’s seat.

If you’re the last one on, you can see which other seats are open once they’ve closed the boarding doors.

If you know no one’s behind you, you can take that instead.
