    I'm scheduled on AA528 BUR to DFW connecting to DCA on AA1548 with a F upgrade through DFW only. AA528 is oversold. AA is offering $400 to take a different routing LAX-ORD-DCA with a 2 hour later arrival and .o upgrade. Do I take the bump?

    If not in a middle seat on the LAX-ORD-DCA and you can put the $400 to good use...maybe! :)

    My general rule is to avoid the middle seat...unless a dire emergency...

    I'd say it depends on the seat you can get LAX-ORD. Are you EXP?

    Personally I'd take it for the novelty. In all my years of flying AA I've NEVER been on a flight with a bump offer.

    My views removed, if you get a decent seat and could use that $400 on a EXP mileage run, I say why not? ;)

    Problem solved! Upgraded on both flights and increased voucher to $500! And they cover the $80 cab fare!

    Congratulations - and yes, before I got to the "Problem solved" post in this thread, having already seen you were an Executive Platinum in your tag line, I was gonna tell you to take it for $400. But that's conservative ol' me -- you ended up with $500. (Enjoy the cab ride -- we've all seen the L.A. cab debacle on "The Amazing Race," heh heh.
