Last Friday, a woman was waiting for a flight from Atlanta to South Bend, IN, when the Delta airline realized it had vastly overbooked the flight.
When the airline authority realized that there was a flaw in booking system, the Delta Airlines offered the waiting passenger to recompense about $2,200 for someone to give up their seat.
However, the fans of the University of Georgia who were filling the plane didn’t covet to obtain the risk of missing the Notre Dame Football game, a regional football game, popular among the students where they were heading to.
Delta Ailrines started bidding up once it became clear that no one was willing to take a later flight.
The price of compensation hiked with $4,000 before Tracy Jarvis Smith volunteered to give her seat up to a Georgia fan who had confirmed a flight reservation, but had not been assigned a seat.
Tracy Jarvis Smith confessed on her social media account that she had been waiting for the price to hit $4000, and stated that $4,000 was her magic number, followed by some hashtags.
It is lucky for her that Jarvis ended up with a bulky confirm and the next flight out – putting her in Indiana a mere eight hours later than expected.
