My wife is flying home from SNA today. SNA-DEN-ORD-GRR. Already at SNA they are calling for volunteers for DEN-ORD to take bump. Wife of course volunteers. Gate agent says to her: "You have another choice, you can pay $250 to change your flight to go direct to ORD and still get home same time, but that would be in economy and not Y+" (wife has Y+ subscription). Say whaaaa? She volunteers and they want to extort another $250 from her to free up a seat they screwed up and oversold in the first place. Welcome to the new UA?
