BINGO!!
Sad to say but in an oversold situation and with no volunteers, the lowest fare ticket holders get pulled.
Was she offered any type of compensation??
Missing the last flight of the evening, as a courtesy, she should have at least been offered meal or even room vouchers from the airline's CSA.
Are you sure it wasn't a "Buddy Pass" that she was flying on?

Most likely was a buddy pass, after talking with them more. Still made me mad she had to stay at the airport for 7 hours. I'm flying her home first class on monday so I know she gets there safely and can rest. No offers where offered to her. I just need to vent my frustration.

If it was a Buddy Pass...it WAS Standby. No compensation would have been offered.
Gotta have a flexible schedule using those passes. It's part of that game.
Not the airlines fault...her friend should have communicated to your daughter more info on how those actually work and what can happen.
Still...I hate it for her.
