Although we are eager to get home we decided to take a bump to a later flight out of LAX. We decided that since we can't pick up the dogs until tomorrow we would take advantage of the perks of being bumped!
To start with we each got a $300 voucher on Alaska airlines that is good for one year. It's nice since the flights to LA were more expensive than usual - makes the trip much more affordable. We can use the vouchers in March when we come to the PAC-10 basketball tournament! We also received access to the Alaska Airlines boardroom at the airport.
It's much better to hang out in the boardroom than it is in the main terminal! Big screen TV's with bowl games playing and free food and drinks! Finally as an added bonus - first class upgrade for our later flight home!
Until then we will hang out and watch football!
