NHL star Patrick Kane gives up first-class seat to serviceman
Patrick Kane is one of the best players in the NHL, and as such, when he travels by air his accommodations are likely better than average.
However, on a recent American Airlines flight Kane took, he decided to give up his first-class seat to a member of America’s military who was seated in coach.
According to CBS Chicago, flight attendant Teri Truss shared the story:
“He said, ‘There’s a soldier on this flight,’ and I said ‘Yeah, OK?’” Truss said. “He said, ‘I would like for him to sit up front, and I would like to give him my first-class seat, and I’ll go to the back.’ I’m like, ‘Are you sure?’ He said ‘yes,’ and I was like, ‘Perfect, great opportunity.’”
Truss went on to say the serviceman was grateful to Kane.
