Yes, I hear they offer better deals when u are at the airport. Cool arubaLisa, when we are sitting in Miami I will post on this site and maybe we can say hi. I will be w wife and 2 kids. It does feel like a lottery or casino win! To early to book our next trip, but I am ready.
I guess I don't understand how airlines overbook. Would they save money if they booked the proper amount of people for the number of seats they have on a plane??? Then they wouldn't have to offer money to passengers to get them to move (although, it's a great benefit to passengers). Could fairs go down if the airlines properly booked to begin with?
I'm not knowledgeable on the inner workings of airlines so I may be making this a bit too simplistic.
