If we have 2 tickets (R/T) cross country for 12/24 what are our chances of getting bumped?
This is the deal---we bought two tickets from Portland (OR) to Buffalo, NY for a red-eye flight on 12/24. The weather stinks all around and we don't feel like going. The airline cancelled the same flight yesterday, our flight is sold out and the flight the next day is sold out. What do you think our chances are of getting bumped?

If you get there early and check in you would be better off than being late.
Probably pretty good. With more snow on the way, your flight may well be cancelled anyway. If not, show up anyways, early, and you may well be bumped, and get two free tickets for a later date. My sister and her husband have had this happen to them twice in the last year. Last christmas, their flight was overbooked, and so they volunteered to have the airline pay for their hotel and meals (next flight was the next day), and round-trip tickets anywhere in the 50 states, good for a year. When they used those tickets in the summer, I think the same thing happened, and so they got another pair.
