Hill elaborated on what happened on the Delta flight from Detroit to Los Angeles in an email to Today.com.
"When we were waiting to board, I saw her glance the soldier's way and then she said something to the person she was traveling with," Hill wrote. "Once we boarded, I saw she was in first class. I was upgraded to first class and she was a couple rows behind me. I think she must have said something to the flight attendant, because before we took off she had vacated her seat and the flight attendant brought the soldier to her seat."
When the soldier accepted Adams seat in first class, she headed back to his spot in coach, where she took a selfie with a passenger she was now sitting beside. “Told @InsideEdition why Amy Adams was classy for giving up her 1st class seat to the soldier sitting next to me! :),” passenger Ernest Owens captioned the snap.
