Opportunity Costs

by Jadrian

Colleen and Matt are at the airport waiting for their flight, but it's overbooked. They realize that they can receive flight vouchers for volunteering to wait for the next flight. Throughout the day, they continue to volunteer to be moved to the next flight until the last flight of the day is cancelled. The two end up missing their own wedding, but they are compensated with the "free hotel." The scene outlines the value of time that people have in their willingness to delay their travel, but it also shows the potential risk of not making it somewhere.
