My husband and I saved up and bought 2 first class tickets for our upcoming trip (4 weeks from now) from Seattle to Kauai. We bought them in February. We just found out today that first class is over booked on our return flight "due to operational needs" and they said since we were the last to book (7 months ago... really?) they pulled our reservations and put us on a flight 24 hours later, in coach. Although an extra day would be nice, my husband works at the local hospital and can NOT miss another work day. On top of that, we can't leave our kids alone for 24 hours!! The only compensation they would give us is $300 and 15k FF miles. (I called and talked to SEVERAL supervisors). They said that this does not count as an Involuntary bump since we are not checked into the flight so we do not qualify for the regular $1350 compensation. The flight was not cancelled, and first class was overbooked by ONE. How can they know who will show up for a flight 4 weeks from now? Do we have any leg to stand on?
