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.
