Hello, Although I usually travel in J, I assume even business travellers booked in Y may be called upon to be bumped on overbooked flights (status depending). With generally very tight schedules this scares me a bit. I'm interested in others experiences with this issue on QF or other airlines. If selected to be bumped what are your rights? i.e.. can you dig your heels in and start throwing your toys if the time delay is really bothersome? Thanks.

Truthfully, I would not kick up a stink when it comes to airports.

Maybe I'm lucky but I've not seen this happen in Oz with Qantas. I see it a lot in the US so maybe they're not as good at load predictions. In you're worried about this due to the United debacle, keep in mind that this wasn't an overbooking issue - it was hardcore incompetence colliding with a min-wage mall cop with anger management issues!
