Delta Airlines Asks Grand Rapids Passengers: “Would You Miss Your Flight For $10k”?
We've all heard of it happening, and maybe you've taken advantage of it yourself: Sometimes when you book a flight and it's oversold, airlines will offer you the chance to delay or cancel your flight in exchange for future vouchers. Sometimes you'll get lunch and get additional cash on top of your free ticket.
Have you ever thought about exactly how much money it would take for you to skip your flight out of town? What if the number was closer to what you'd make in several months than the price you paid for the ticket?
Now, we are missing a few details, but based on what we know about the tweet, it looks like this was a flight scheduled to leave this weekend, which is a holiday weekend, and with this being the first big mid-summer travel weekend since COVID started, it's likely that flights are PACKED.
If you're traveling this weekend, be safe, and have a plan in place just in case you too get offered an insane amount of money to give up your seat and have a well funded staycation.
