Horizon Airlines gates A5-12 all front onto a common departure lounge. A flight for Fresno is leaving shortly, and it's oversold. The gate agent took a slightly different approach to attracting volunteers, saying, "We have Very Special Offer right here good only for Fresno-bound passengers this afternoon. We have a two hundred dollar travel voucher that we'll give to the first person to come up here and agree to fly to Fresno just a little bit later this evening. This is a limited time offer, and you have to take it right now!" Essentially, he turned the normal spiel around and made it a promotion. I had this vision of an old K-Mart "Blue Light Special."
If they do the same thing on the Oakland flight, I'll take it and call David Clark and tell him I won't be there at OAK after all, so he should go to BASFA without me.
