The GA's in AMS definitely have a different approach. I've never been able to score a TATL opup or bump, even on oversold flights. Sweet-talking doesn't go very far there. They do lie sometimes, but NW staff lies just as much (let's not forget about "F IS CHECKED IN FULL!"). It's just a matter of the way answers are given, and I totally agree with humanoid94 that this is a cultural difference. Instead of "yeah, sure, maybe... have a seat and we'll see", they'd rather say "no!".
