I've never gotten notice anywhere near that far in advance. (Come to think of it, I've never gotten a VDB request in advance at all; the earliest was at the check-in counter. Every other time was at the gate.

(I'm not counting "We might need volunteers" at check-in; I'm only counting "We'll pay you $X right now.")
