Sorry guys we're overbooked...
I've seen it on TV - I've heard of it happening to others - but this is the first time its happened when I'm around. Pity those travelling to Reno.
"We seem to have an overbooking situation. We're looking for volunteers to take a later flight. We'll give you a $250 travel voucher good for America West and US Airlines if you'll get our asses out of this sling and give up your seat".
Heh... I'm not seeing any takers - pity the poor suckers who are booted unwillingly .... they are NOT booting me off my flight if this happens with my LA flight. I have an international connection ;o)
