Overbooked

Al lright, we've got some American Airlines overbooking going on. I just got this announcement over the loudspeaker (paraphrased): Ladies and gentlemen we are overbooked for this flight, and we are looking for four volunteers to give up their seats. In exchange, we will provide you with a $250 travel voucher and we will put you on a different flight, maybe with a different airline, to get you where you need to go. Unfortunately, we will not be able to begin boarding until this issue is resolved. I'm not budging. But I will have the joy of being in a sealed tube with every single seat taken. Triple ugh.
