Getting Bumped question

I just checked my seating assignment on the plane to Puerto Rico and notice that coming and going is almost filled. I'm not giving up going down, but coming back will be happy to give up my seat. Does anyone know the new rules/etc. about giving up seat? Do you still get hotel/food/ new tickets?

1. Re: Getting Bumped question

the last time I was on a flight that people were being asked to give up their seats, they received a voucher for future travel. the hotel/food vouchers are not as common as they used to be. i would suggest checking in once you get to the gate and let them know you are willing to give up your seat after asking them how you will be compensated. if they do make that announcement about giving up seats, you will be picked regardless of how many people jump at the opportunity.

it's obviously a case by case basis, based on the air carrier
