I finally had a nice VDB success 12/20 evening LGA-CHA nonstop. $600 final offer for a flight the next morning

Gate agent initially offered $300 for a flight the next day getting into CHA about 1:30PM. I accepted but hoped the offer would go up.
They needed 4 people they confirmed.

Offer goes to $500 and finally $600 where they got the four they needed.
So the four of us hang tight as usual. With one no show, only three were needed but I was #1 so it all worked out.

In the past, the days before Christmas NYC-CHA (usually through ATL) have been very good to me VDB wise. That has not been the case in recent years though.

I almost got another VDB on 12/21 booked on the 8:59AM LGA-ATL but they had several no shows and ended up clearing a few standby's even.

Here's hoping my return flight on the 26th is also generous and kind.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, flyers!
