Re: Rule 240
Coincidently, the guy I sat next to on a recent flight was 240-ed onto my flight. I had never heard of it before then. He grumbled because he always flew 1st class and was back in the cattle section with us unwashed masses.
One other hint for a canceled flight... when waiting in the long line at the airline counter to get rebooked, call the airline 1-800 number. You may get through to them before you reach the front of the line. And if someone else close to you gets through to an agent, ask if you can keep the agent on the phone and get yourself rebooked.
