I been traveling quite a bit lately. For the first time, I heard them ask for volunteers to get bumped. In my head im thinking, FINALLY!! as I jump up for joy and make a like a mad man to the desk. I had to wait 3 hours, and another 1hr and 45mins because that flight was delayed but in the end I only lost time. I did miss my train and I had to wait another 3 hours for the next train, but I think I just got hit with bad luck that day with the delays. I did happen to take an early flight this trip, 10:40am from vegas to den. Vegas flight was packed also, but den is where I got bumped. Does anyone have any tips on trying to get bumped more? I guess when you fly during busy times you have a better chance? What times are the busiest to fly? This trip I went thurs-thurs all early fights and each flight was packed. Normally I take the latest flights and normally half the plane is empty. But then again I normally fly midweek so I dont know if flying on a thursday(closer to weekend) has that much effect on passengers.
