Re: Regional airliners and heat...

It's not as much a regional aircraft thing as it is a manufacturer thing. Bombardier only publishes performance stats up to 116 degrees farenheit, and obviously you can't fly a plane if the manufacturer doesn't give you any performance data. It's 117 in Phoenix right now.

Re: Chances of Being Bumped from my ATL-EYW-ATL flights

The airline will only bump the people that "mean the least" to the flight. These are last people to check in, bought the cheapest tickets, booked within days of the flight, etc. Your chances are slim to none.
