They have also stated they don't do it for "severely overbooked" flights, which I think would include your "30" example.

I don't think Chase coverage kicks in if you have CDW on the rental, except in those rare countries where CDW is mandatory by law (France is not one of those countries).

Would ATL-ORD-PEK-(OZ)-GMP work for you? There is a 6pm flight leaving a reasonable connection in PEK.

It's a European Union regulation interpreted by the European Court of Justice. Saying that it doesn't apply in EU-member Greece is a pretty jerk move.

Non-GS cannot generally get on flights where the inventory shows Y0, regardless of whether seats are assigned.
