UC Irvine's 7'6" Mamadou N'Diaye Got Stuck Sitting in the Middle Seat of Coach

Vanessa de BeaumontContributor IMarch 25, 2016

Turbulence, chatty neighbors, stale air, limited leg room and the dreaded center seat—despite all of its tremendous upside, air travel often proves to be a tremendous grind.

For 7'6" Mamadou N'Diaye, that struggle is considerably more real.

While on a flight with his UC Irvine teammates, the long-limbed center was sandwiched between two passengers and stuffed into undersized rear-craft cabin space—in other words, the coach middle seat.

Unfortunately for N'Diaye, this means he'll be forced to face nearly the complete gambit of airline obstacles (assuming that, given his conspicuous size, his neighbors will be interested in a conversation).

Hopefully for him, this travel experience proves to be the smoothest yet.
