A French Instagram influencer has reportedly been exposed as a business class fraudster on an Emirates flight.

“Next Stop – Monaco. Je fly toute la night” — or “I fly all night” — Oceane El Himer wrote her roughly 847,000 followers last week.

The 27-year-old model from Bordeaux posted a photo of herself striking a pose while wearing a light green top and purple sweats – midriff exposed – in business class, according to Newsweek.

The image received almost 103,000 likes as of Thursday afternoon.

But another photo, shared on Twitter, appears to show the brunette crammed into an economy seat along with the huddled masses, wearing the same outfit.

“Dubai model exposed by co-passengers after she posed in business class cabin & posted photos online then returned to her seat in economy before takeoff,” the caption reads, according to the mag.

Her Instagram account lists her as living in the United Arab Emirates city.

Oceane’s post received a sea of comments about influencer culture.

“Been saying social media an illness. Got people lying for attention and others wanting to make a career out of it,” Twitter user @ Thisguyhere88 wrote.

“If you’ve ever been out this way, this sums up the culture,” @lLexxLugger wrote. “A bunch of people pretending to either be rich, a model, or an entrepreneur. 90% of the people in that city pretending.”

And @teria224 added: “Crazy how ppl go to hell and back to impress people they don’t know people who apply nothing to their life.”

Himer defended her post on Snapchat, where she said there’s “no shame in traveling in eco class,” Newsweek reported.

“I took several flights to arrive in the south, including one in eco class,” she wrote. “Took a picture and I accepted. I fully assume the fact of traveling in eco class, I’m not the type of girl who likes to show her money… Yes I traveled in eco and in business. And so?”

She added that “much more serious things are happening in life.”
