Would you give up your airplane seat to Cam Newton for $1,500? This guy wouldn’t
Extra legroom on airplanes has become a premium — especially for a long flight.
An athlete such as Cam Newton, who is 6-foot-5, could certainly use that extra legroom on a transatlantic trip.
The Carolina Panthers quarterback probably realized that on Saturday while boarding a flight from Paris to the U.S. So Newton apparently attempted to buy a seat with extra legroom from a fellow passenger — for $1,500 in cash.
Unfortunately for Newton, that passenger passed on the offer.
So it was coach seating for Newton.
Would you give up a plane seat with extra legroom on a 10-hour flight for $1,500? Apparently some passengers feel that no amount of money can buy that comfort. As Newton learned.
Twitter, however, disagreed.
