I see oldmate was ripped off a united flight after paying for his ticket so his seat could be given to a crew member.  :thumbsdown:

We caught 6 flights in the US and at least 3 of them were overbooked and asking for people to catch the next flight and receive a voucher.

I'm aware Qantas overbook their international flights, and if everyone shows, they upgrade passengers. Only drama would be if first class is fully booked, guess that never happens?

Yanks are pretty hopeless with running their airlines, we had first hand experience.

Heaps more flights and people compared to us, but they could learn a thing or two off us.

I believe our airlines do not intentionally overbook like in the USA. I'm sure we have some rules and regulations against it.
Flying internally in the USA is a cluster fuck.

I'm astounded how a country like the US can literally fuck such basic services up. Health care, airline travel and coffee.
