How To Fly For Free

Hedda and I are sitting in Dulles Airport right now. We were waiting to fly home for Christmas. However, the flight was way oversold and we decided to volunteer our tickets. We made a couple of people really happy by helping them get home for Christmas, and we’ll be flying into O’Hare early tomorrow morning, instead.

The best part, of course, is that we get two free tickets. The funny part is that these tickets were purchased using a voucher for a seat Hedda volunteered several months ago. The net result is that we’re going to have made a total of five round trips for about $200. You can’t beat $20 a flight! Now if we can just figure out a way to get bumped from our future free flight, and then the flight after that, and then the flight after that….we can fly for free!

The only downside is that now we have to turn around and go home from the airport. I really hope they got our luggage off the plane!
