I can remember in the recent past AA had overbooked all their flights into JFK and MIA from MBJ. They offered passengers who gave up their seat a free overnight stay in a hotel and a free ticket to travel within 12 months to any AA destination in the world.
Here's the Question:
If you had to really get back to work the following morning and you were a confirmed passenger on any of these flights,would you have given up your seat?

Yup! You betcha! Think about it - one day of work vs a free flight to any where AA flies. It definitely makes monetary sense.


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Interesting question. Once, when I was a dumb college student, I was on a TWA L1011 bound from St.Louis to San Francisco that was totally full.

They were asking if anybody would give up their seat on the plane. I believe they mentioned offering a free flight or something but I totally ignored it.

When my Dad picked me up, I told him about it on the way home and he looked at me like I had just fallen off another planet! He couldn't believe that I would have passed up a free flight just to get back to SFO a few hours earlier.

When he said that, I realized I had made a terrible mistake. And in the 20 years since, I have never had a chance to redeem myself. I have never again been offered to be "bumped" off a plane.

Our family made out like bandits last time we traveled together: MIA -> DFW Bumped 4 times! When we finally did get to leave they gave us all Business on a 777. It was great.  Smile
