AA was overbooked like crazy yesterday

My normal PHX/PHL flight yesterday was overbooked by 4 and everyone showed up.


$800 to take the redeye.  I am feeling it now.


Talking to a gate agent, there were several worse, PHX-ORD was 9 people oversold ($1K each) and JFK went for $1500. One couple pulled double payment as they gave up a seat on Saturday, and hten again on Sunday.  Good work if you can get it.
