Not only is Russell Wilson navigating the Seattle Seahawks to the NFL playoffs, he’s also helping fans who are flying across the country. Folks wearing a Russell Wilson jersey will receive priority seating from Alaska Airlines, according to TMZ Sports.
A rep for the airline tells us … from now ’til the end of the season, any passengers wearing a #3 Seahawks jersey flying out of Seattle will get to board the plane first. Which pretty much means GUARANTEED overhead carry-on space.
Alaska Airlines recently signed Wilson as its new endorser. This appears to be the beginning of a beautiful business relationship.
In his second year at the helm, the Seahawks quarterback has blossomed into a league-wide superstar. Wilson has led the team to a 12-2 record while throwing for 3,077 yards and 24 interceptions, compared to just 8 interceptions.
