Sorry to take this here. I'm more reader than poster. But need some fast guidance.
Booked on 11AM SFO to FLL on Virgin America
7:50AM has availability. They tell me I need to be there at 5:50AM, that there are seats open, but won't say how many. Also tell me that if it's not in my "class" then not available. They don't "bump up anyone to make room." Which I find preposterous.
There's a 11:55PM tonight, with space. They tell me I "cannot fly standby the day before..."
If I show up at the airport tonight do you think there's a chance they'd get me on that plane, or would they hold fast to that rule?
Has anyone experienced this?
I really thought they were going to be a great alternative to the Star Alliance, and I've stood by Continental for over 15 years, but I'm seeing this was a mistake.
