NFL quarterback Cam Newton offers $1,500 to a fellow passenger to swap economy class seats


Cam Newton, an American football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League (NFL) recently missed his business class flight and got stuck in economy to get home. The football star offered a fellow passenger – sitting at the emergency exit row – $1,500 to change seats, which the passenger refused to enjoy some more leg space.

In a video on Twitter, uploaded by Eli Edwards, you can see Cam Newton walking back to his original seat to enjoy his 10-hour flight, like the rest of the passengers.
