UA 3762 AVP-ORD yesterday: As I was returning to the gate area from the restroom, I heard an announcement that they were oversold by 1, and that "If you are terminating in Chicago, we can give you a taxi voucher to Harrisburg (a 2 hour drive), confirm you on the 5:40PM to Chicago, and give you a $2,500 voucher." Somebody took it immediately.

I was preparing my counter offer of "I'll take it if you would put me up in a hotel at ORD (as I would likely miss the last connection to LAX) and confirm me in F for tomorrow morning." (I was in paid F.) Oh, well!!! This morning I can tease my co-workers about how close I came to selling them out for $2,500 is UA funny money!
