I booked a quick-turn flight DFW-TUL-DFW to qualify for the 11k point bonus for the Day 1 deal of the 30 Years promo. (Book 5 trips by April 30 for 30k miles, each flight is worth an increasing number of miles) Now I'm at the gate, the flight has been delayed, and there are 30+ people on the standby list for my flight. I assume this is all backup from the OKC fiasco yesterday. I would happily forgo my little mile run so that someone who was stranded could get home, but I would like my 11k bonus. To complicate matters, this is flight #2 of the 5-flight series, so on its face value, it is only worth 3k miles, but missing the flight would result in me eventually missing the 11k bonus. Is there any way to give up my seat or skip the trip but still collect the promo bonus? Would trip-in-vain work? I don't think they will be asking for VDBs because this is not an oversold situation.
