Maybe, maybe not. If I'm sitting beside my wife and it's a huge problem to make things work out at the destination if we're split up then maybe they can roll the dice again. And security doesn't have to bloody a traveler but then again they HAVE to get him off or that stupid system won't work at all if people say no thanks. I recently flew to Pittsburgh and the trip out on Delta was bad from the start. Announced late departure hours before flight, overbooked, and what is this "seat assigned at gate stuff"? I was 3rd from last to get a seat and was convinced I was being bumped. Then the connection at Detroit was overbooked and late as well. Too much stress. The return flight on Southwest was great, the way it should be. Astro14's post was well written and informative but the only data point I'm interested in is MINE, as is every other person flying!
