Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Bumps

Have you ever been at the airport and heard a gate agent asking for volunteers to be bumped? The plane is oversold, or has a weight limit, and the agent is offering hundreds of dollars to anyone who will volunteer to take a later flight.

What you want is to volunteer to be bumped before others have time to decide if they can postpone their travel. This is a decision that should be made before the announcement, not afterwards.

Some airlines usually offer $300, $400 or more of flight credit per bump, others usually offer a travel credit good for round-trip to any domestic (non-Hawaii) destination served by the airline. In either case, you normally have 12 months to use or lose the benefit.

Occasionally you may be bumped from coach into First or Business class on your new flight. It’s worth asking for this benefit.

Bumps are excellent ways how to fly free.
