Transcript for Woman gives up flight seat for $4,000
Finally, overbooked flights, when they ask someone to give up their seat. Linzie Janis with the woman who won. Reporter: This one's for anyone who's ever been on an overbooked flight. I've heard people giving up their seats for $500, but never anything like this. Reporter: Tracy Smith was flying with her husband and son to Indiana for the big notre dame/georgia game last weekend. Delta desperately looking for volunteers to give up their seat. By the time we boarded the plane, the bidding was at $2,000 then $2,200, $2,500, $3,000. Reporter: But Tracy wasn't budging. I said, you know, I really think that if they get to $4,000, I'm going to get off this plane. Reporter: And that's when it happened. They came back at $4,000 and without a flinch, I pressed the flight attendant button. Reporter: Delta forking over those $4,000 in travel vouchers. As for Tracy, she's now thinking about a vacation in Hawaii. Linzie Janis, ABC news, new York. And she still made it to the game. Thank you for watching. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow.
