This story is pretty amazing and I really do not know what to do.
NFL star Cam Newton, who claims to make $ 20 million a year, flew from Paris to the United States on Friday. Obviously, he had to fly from Paris to Charlotte in the US business class, but missed his flight, and the only other option to take him home was to fly from Paris to Dallas in the economy.
I think this is probably a good time. to mention that there is almost certainly another way in which the Atlantic could cross the business class that day, so little research may have come a long way. I suppose this is the only way Americans can bring him there, or, more precisely, the only way an American representative claims to be able to find him there. It was a pity that he did not know that the last minute is often the best time to use miles for international first and business class tickets.
This is something different than that, but …
Then he was detained on a flight from Paris to Dallas in a regular economy seat. He is 6 ", so when he boarded he claims to have offered the man at the exit line $ 1
The surprising part?
Here's the video that a fellow traveler took:

it is understood that this is the power of the person to reject the request, so we can not blame him for it in any way, but I'm sure many of us say, "I would have done it for a moment."
Of course we do not know the full one context here, although I suppose 99% of people would say "yes" to this change of place – that's especially true when you think this is in the economy – I suppose if $ 1,500 is not something for the person at the end at the exit, he might have thought of booking a business class (which you could probably easily find for another $ 2000 tour).
I know why the guy said no, I have a common theory that's true about so many things at airports and planes. I feel that when people board airplanes, they take a "survival of the strongest" approach. There is a high level of mistrust to everyone else and we are so on the brink that we do not agree with what we would agree on the ground.
For example, my American flight was over-sold yesterday, and they offered three hours later to reset people on a flight in exchange for a $ 700 voucher. Now, of course, this is just American Airlines' voucher, not cash, but I think that many people (or at least enough people) will objectively think this is useful. However, we have such a high level of mistrust in the airline that we suddenly lose confidence in things.
I guess my last question is why Cam Newton did not offer his proposal. Was $ 1,500 his "best and last" price for not being completely unhappy for 10 hours? Was he paying in cash and that's all his money? Should not he try to ask other people, or even ask people in the business class to change for more?
What is your theory about this situation?
