Well, we have flown to LV at least once a year since 1991--starting on charter flights early, then Allegiant or whoever was cheapest. Because of the free 50k points offer--we both took advantage of it--we started flying SWA a couple years ago. It means going to a larger city airport, but for free, we do it. Twelve years ago I retired (yea!) but my wife continued to work (her choice!) until 2010, so neither of us has a regular commitment. Anyway, we had promised to take our two grand kids to LV when they turned 21. In December our granddaughter turned, so we offered and she took us up on it. Her mother, our oldest, decided to go with us. They had time restrictions because grand daughter had to study to take RN state boards and daughter had to get back to work. So we booked SWA Thurs thru Sunday in late January, we live in different cities, so we would have two cars at the airport. As soon as we booked it, I said to my wife that we should have booked them back on Sunday, and us later in the week. Anyway, we did not cancel and rebook, but did mention it to our daughter sometime while we were in LV. She suggested asking about a bump at McCarran. So we go to the airport on Sun, check in, go to the gate and I head to the restroom--ok, I'm old. When I get back to the gate, the wife is standing at the desk. When I ask daughter if there is a problem, she says "no, we volunteered you guys for a bump and they just called her to the desk". Oh! Wife comes back and says, they offered us a bump. We can fly any time they have two seats--which they had two hours from now or any day later in the week . . . and they will give us $1069 in SWA vouchers for future flights within the next year. So we book a flight back on Wed, get on the phone and get a room Downtown, wave goodbye to the offspring and head for the WAX. The only issue was that our luggage--other than our carry on--had already been loaded for St. Louis and he could not get it back. Actually, they offered to have it shipped back to LV on Mon and deliver it to our hotel if we wanted. We just decided to let our daughter get the luggage and take it to her home. We checked in DT, took the Sam's bus to Boulder, where we hit the WalMart for toothpaste, underwear, and other essentials. Spend a relaxing three days DT running down free play coupons and hitting the good VP and buffets. Nice break from running the kids on the Strip. Flew back Wed, direct flight, with over a grand in SWA vouchers! How they arrived at $1069 is beyond me--didn't seem to be related to what the original fare had been. But it seemed more than fair to us--actually, in this specific case, we would have done it for free just to get the extra time in LV. Like my second daughter said when we got back "nice to be retired!"
