The SHOW: Airlines still a "good gig"??

Maybe the wrong place, but does not seem as if the topic rates it's own thread,....

I have been invited by a friend to play in a member guest at St. Andrews in September, which despite being totally unqualified to do, I have agreed to.

I will be flying from AGS to EDI, and have been offered buddy passes on Delta. I realize that this makes you first on the list to get bumped, but given your expert knowledge, as long as I left 2 days early do you think I would safely be able to make it? He said he can't check on the load factors until closer to the flight time, and I want to get something locked in within the next few days. I want to save the cash if I can, but I don't want to wait too long.

Like I said, I realize there are thousands of variables, but does this scream out " bad idea " to those of you in the know?

Based on a career of non rev travel, I have NEVER flown standby when I had to get there. Wedding, cruise ship departure, business meeting, ever. It may look good but if UAL or BA cancel they put their 200 people on your Delta flight that had 50 open seats. Weather in your neck of the woods can result in a delayed flight and those paxs take your seat on the later flight. Has happened to me more than once. Not a golfer. But an invitation to play St Andrews sounds once in a life time.
