So begins my 3-day transcon odyssey. As I posted in earlier threads, I redeemed some Delta Skymiles ( * cough - worthless - cough * ) hoping to get on some overbooked flights so as to be voluntarily bumped and receive full value vouchers.
I wanted to get my money’s worth and get the maximum number of opportunities, so I chose routes with the most number of stops, thus giving me more chances at getting on an overbooked flight. As it turns out, some flights are near full, but they probably will not be overbooked. So it looks like I’m just gonna have a weekend of a bunch of happy flights across the U.S. and back.
For anyone who cares or otherwise has nothing else better to do, I offer my itinerary:

(Given the last few weeks of events, I’ll add the words “I hope”)
