Airline passenger leaves the internet stunned after refusing airline’s offer of $1,500 cash to give up her seat on a full flight — but would you accept?

  • Collins Kaye had to resist accepting the amount – and also a night in a hotel
  • She explained that it was the last day of her paid leave
  • Hundreds responded to the comments and admitted they would have jumped at the offer

A young woman was left heartbroken when she was unable to accept the astronomical sum of $1,500 to give up her seat on an overcrowded flight, as she had to be at work the next morning.

Collins Kaye, who serves in the US military, filmed herself sitting before takeoff as a flight attendant announced that the airline would pay a large sum of money to anyone willing to get off and take a flight the next morning.

“Who’s going to take it? $1,500,” the flight attendant could be heard asking the passengers — before someone accepted the amount seconds later.

Collins admitted in the text overlay of the message: “I’m bummed that my leave ends today because I was going to give up this seat for that $1,500.

In the caption she asked, “Do you want to get out?”

Collins further clarified that the airline was not only offering $1,500 cash, but also a night’s hotel stay and a flight the next morning departing at 9:30 a.m.

Normally, military personnel receive 30 days of paid leave per year.

Hundreds of people responded to the comments, vowing to be the first to volunteer to take the plane the next morning in exchange for money and a night in the hotel.

“You are better than me. I would have been at the hotel already checking into my room,” wrote one.

“I would have yelled BINGO, stood up and walked forward,” a second insisted.

“I would have been at the exit before she said a hundred,” declared a third.

“Yes, my flight is delayed,” a fourth suggested as a white lie so he could accept the offer.

Hundreds responded to the comments, vowing they would never have passed up the chance to win $15,000

“I should have called them QUICKLY and extended my leave,” said a fifth, to which Collins replied: “Oh dear, I should have, I feel so bad now.”

“I jump over chairs,” fantasized a sixth.

“I would have dropped that plan so quickly,” agreed a seventh, to which Collins chimed in: “Girl, I wanted it so bad.”

Collins’ story isn’t the only recent viral drama involving airplane seats.

As DailyMail.com reported, a woman recently took to Reddit to wonder what she should have done when she saw another woman sitting in her assigned seat.
