That's exactly what I would have said.....*NO THANKS*....I sure there are many folks would appreciate the non-stop, but to me, arriving 5 hours earlier to your destination should not be assumed to be the only compensation. If the price were similar, I would almost always choose a connection (or two or three) over a non-stop primarily because of the extra miles and honestly, I actually enjoy traveling....if I'm going to give up my carefully thought out seat selections on my AS flights as well as a chance to chill out in a lounge at SEA for a potential middle seat in the back of the plane on DL and have to beg for some ORC miles, I'd better be getting something for helping AS out in an oversold situation.
