Unplanned Pit Stop
My flight home yesterday from San Francisco to Los Angeles was oversold. I voluntarily gave up my seat on a nonstop flight and instead flew on a small plane from SFO to Monterey and then on a different small plane from Monterey to LAX.
That way I got more frequent flyer points and, as the ticket agent described it over the sound system, "a free roundtrip ticket good for anywhere in the 48 continental United States except Alaska or Hawaii."
