Not to mention, next flight guarantee is a HUGE perk (even though GS didn't honor it during two situations involving blizzards, as they refused to put me onto flights that were already oversold by 5+...

When there are lots and lots needed, like in this case, try to be the first one to volunteer. They always go with the first person in line (the online list doesn't matter). Even if the offer starts...

$500 seems pretty weak for a 24 hour delay on int'l. I have taken much more for just a 4 hour delay. :rolleyes:
$1500 for a downgrade from J to Y seems a bit more on par for the length of flight,...

Correct. The Sunday after Thanksgiving would be 0% chance. Saturday is a great day to travel... usually as little as half the cost of flying that Sunday or Monday.
