Anyone who has flown before knows how coveted any seats are with extra leg room. Cam Newton found this out the hard way last week.
Newton was on a 10-hour flight the other day when he asked a fellow passenger to switch seats. Newton understandably wanted the man’s seat with extra leg room, and was willing to pay $1,500 for hit.
Incredibly, the offer was turned down. Newton had to sit his 6-foot-5, 250-pound frame in his assigned seat for the duration of the trip.
Here is video of the conversation between Newton and the other passenger.

We’ve got some questions here. For one, why did the man turn down $1,500 for his seat? More room is awesome but that’s a decent amount of cash.
Secondly, is Newton not in first class? If so, why? And if he is in first class, does that mean there was only one exit row seat with the additional room?
More information would be greatly appreciated.
