Cam Newton offers dude $1500 to change seats on plane, guy says no lol

Recommended Posts

Wow, Cam wanted more leg room and offered some dude $1500 cash to switch seats with him on a 10 hour flight and the guy turned it down.  

 

I am 6’4” but I would have taken that in a heartbeat. I’ve done longer flights in the standard seat, not that bad.

if its a 1st class seat then it probably cost $1500 or more. Cam needed to up the ante to $10k

A part of me is glad he got denied.  

 

I hope they were French too.

I would have said no.  That's like Cam offering $5.  Up the ante baby.

 

You would have moved had this first edition copy, signed by the author, been offered up:

I'd have turned him down too. I book first class for a reason, Cam needs a better assistant to get him out of the back of the bus (and $1500 is unlikely to have covered that first class seat).

It looks like he was just asking to move to the front row of the coach section

He definitely should have upped the ante, but he probably did it publicly and wanted his name on the seat too. These rich athletes should be more generous. That way they can go broke sooner into retirement. BAH HUMBUG! 

 

A long flight like that costs a fortune in the first place. He should have made better plans, or paid a higher fraction of what the ticket originally cost. 

 

(Disclaimer: I’ve not read the article yet)

I still wouldn't have done it.

My charming son is about the same size as Cam (my son is about 10# lighter), and doesn't have anything like Cam's money. My son flies to Europe a lot, and figures out how to book a seat that fits his frame . Cam can get better help (a better assistant) to get him a first class ticket or book a plane-share (you know, the ones that were advertised every 10 minutes during the AAF games).

Hardly worth the bother! What self-respecting children’s hospital would even want to do the paperwork for that??? They’re kids, they’ll understand how hard the paperwork is!

It actually is but it depends on how much.

The article says it was a Frist Class seat, but it's not. Watching the video, the guy is in the exit row with only the flight attendant seat in front of him, so he has plenty of leg room and doesn't have to get up if one of his row mates wants to get up. 

 

I wouldn't switch either for anything under $5K.

Obviously he should’ve planned differently if it was absolutely vital. It’s not like he freaked out- dude offered a person in a slightly more spacious seat the change in his pocket, which wasn’t a small sum... Once denied he went back to his seat. 

 

I’m not sure the “back of the bus” and “needs to hire better help” attitude is hitting the mark you expect. In a thread about Cam, you are coming off as the pretentious one 😂

You may not get the freebies of first class there, but you do get the space! That front row of “Comfort Class”, as Delta calls it, has a TON of leg space. I don’t blame him for asking, and I don’t blame anyone for turning him down. He should have planned better, but such is life. Who hasn’t wanted a do-over at some point? Move on.
