This morning, I was scheduled to take the 6:00 am JFK-SFO p.s., which turned out to have been overbooked and oversold. As usual, the GA asked for volunteers who would agree to give up their seats for a $300 voucher and rebooking on the very next p.s., leaving at 6:50 am. Considering that I was in no hurry to get to SFO and that the wait was not going to be that long, the $300 voucher seemed like a real steal, so I volunteered. Since I had been upgraded from Y (E+) to C and I had even managed to select one of the coveted row 9 seats on my original flight, I felt that it was only fair that I tried to get something similar when I was rebooked on the later flight. The GA said that the upgrade to C was available but all row 9 seats were gone. Faking disappointment, I shrewdly requested that I be booked in F since I lost my favorite seat in C for volunteering. The really pleasant GA who was rebooking me just smiled slyly without saying a word. When she was done and reprinted my BP, she had rebooked me in F and told me to use the First-class lounge to wait for my flight! A 2-class upgrade + First-class lounge access + a $300 voucher all for agreeing to wait for 50 min...Is that cool or what? I am even secretly hoping that this will be a gift that keeps on giving and when the miles for the trip post, they will be for flying in F with 50% COS and not for my original Y booking. Just arrived in SFO and checked into Hilton SF Union Square but I am still thinking: Wow! Gotta do that more often because not all good deeds get punished!
