More Travel Fun With YouseAir

Whee. Some people will recall the wacky madcap fun I went through last year flying America West home for Christmas. The return flight, not documented here, was a real clusterfuck. They badly overbooked (10-12 pax each) the first four flights the day of my return, December 26th, mine being the first of the day, off of which I got bumped. I wound up getting onto that fourth flight as a standby, with a $400 voucher in hand for my trouble. I got back to San Diego and up to La Costa Canyon with 1:30 left in the fourth quarter of the game I was going to work.

Time's getting short, I'll fill in details later. My flight home on the 20th was uneventful. Today, my return connection in Phoenix, US1551, was originally sold on an Airbus A320 (150 pax). The gate agent was expecting an A321 (190 pax). What arrived was N709UW, an A319 (124 pax). The agents had no warning at all, and had to deal with 70 very unhappy people.

Fucking oops.
