The only time I’ve ever been bumped British Airways offered £250. Fortunately my brother and I were very early to the airport, so we were first to volunteer for the list. We only had to wait about 4 hours, I think. $100 per hour would be fine now. As a recent college graduate then, it was outstanding. I returned home with more cash than I had when I left for the trip. I definitely felt it made me better off by trading four hours of my time.
