Bumping Order

Fri Jun 23, 2000 12:45 am

Hey! I know that United has some sort of a "Bumping Order". I know the first people bumped from an over booked flight are Non-Rev's. My question is, where along the "Bumping Order" list do passengers who have free tickets (bought with Miles) come? The tickets I have are free Buisness Class tickets, bought with miles from my SkyMiles (Delta) account. Thank-you!

From what I understand, bumping order depends on when you checked in. First come, first served, as it were. If a flight is overbooked, first the gate agents ask for volunteers to give up their tickets. Then, I think they call up pax who checked in later than everyone else. So if you have a free ticket, it doesn't matter, so long as you checked in earlier and are confirmed.
