My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My brother, Adam, and I just finished up our trip to Toronto, Canada last weekend. We both had great time and I was really impressed with Toronto, but I'll have more on that later. On Tuesday we were scheduled to fly home from Toronto (YYZ) to Omaha (OMA) via Detroit (DTW). We had a relatively short connection in Detroit and arrived at our gate right as our flight was scheduled to begin boarding. We weren't even there two minutes when the gate agent announced that our flight was oversold and they needed two volunteers to take a later flight.

Review: Delta Economy A350 Detroit to Beijing

I started planning my trip to Beijing when I saw some great Delta economy fares on their brand new A350. Round trip prices from Omaha (OMA) to Beijing (PEK), with one stop in Detroit (DTW), we're starting at $652. I managed to lower my final out of pocket expense to $577 per ticket with the help of a couple Delta gift cards. I'd say that's one hell of a deal considering I just paid $486 to fly to Fort Meyers, Florida this weekend...

Review: Delta One 767 Minneapolis to London Heathrow

This was the first leg of Elizabeth and I's trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Since Delta doesn't fly to Dubai we had to make a connection in London before continuing on their partner, Virgin Atlantic. Our outbound itinerary ended up looking like this: OMA-MSP-LHR-DXB. I booked this all on one ticket for 85,000 Skymiles and $47.30 per person.
