Rebooked on an E170 out of LGA two hours later in F. Taxi paid for by DL.
Huh.

You volunteered at $1K, then reneged halfway down the jetbridge? I'd have been pretty mad if I was that agent. A deal's a deal.

She shoulda said "No, I'm sure there's another passenger who'll take $1K" and marched you right back onto the aircraft.
