    Most of those are for people that have some cause to complain, and not many would be willing to delay their flight home.

    Having said that, I've gotten bumped to business because I volunteered to wait for another flight...

    Also, depends on airline and avaiable seating.

    SQ, for example, simply will not bump anyone. If you're flying economy on SQ@, though, that's about as good as economy gets, anyway.

    I've started putting 'Dr' on my bookings, just for the hell of it. Sometimes the cabin staff greet you with "Dr. Thudd". And my wife is a Dr so that makes me a Dr by marriage.

    I have an email from Virgin Upgrademe Premium Bid and when I checked the flight it was different (2hrs earlier). Would that be because my flight has no business seats left?

    EDIT: No, no, Bestjet have me booked on the wrong damn flight! I would have turned up at after my flight had taken off! :(
