9) Help the Airline Out
Things can get hectic for the gate agents during a bumping and rebooking period. After you’ve volunteered, you’ll likely be asked to wait while they sort out the other customers. Sit, be patient, and use this time to check out alternate flight options. If you have a connection, it makes things time crucial and more complex. The agents are likely busy trying to avoid a delayed flight and involuntary bumping. They may not have time to be as thorough as you do when looking for a new flight. Find a few decent flight options and wait until the agents are free. When you present your research, inquire about available upgrades, like first-class. They may be willing to do you a favor since you did them one.
