TL, DR; If you miss your flight, don't get your panties in a bunch if the next flight is full, you entitled sack of shiat.

How do people even miss flights? Do they show up right before it's going to leave and not the recommended time?

Booking a 7am flight from Vegas when you're a hardcore alcoholic is never a good idea especially if you show up at the airport 'upallnight drunk'.

It's Vegas. They're either hungover or drunk. Drinking is like time travel or crossing the international date line -- you sit down to rest for a second, blink, and it's the next day.

I think that's the usual method for it. Some folks are drunk/hungover, some are just stupid. I've seen people show up to the airport and try to check bags <45 minutes before departure. The best descriptor for people in that situation is "screwed."

Perhaps he was concerned because if he wasn't back in LA immediately, his career might be harmed.

To be fair, nobody is ever wrong when flipping out about being bumped from about an overbooked flight unless they flat out punch someone in the nose.

If I could fark up half as much as airlines do in booking and customer service and not only still get paid, but call the cops when people get upset, I'd be the happiest guy on the planet.

I mean... shiat... you're talking about an industry that gets paid to actively brutalize its own customers... that's a sweeeeet gig.

Overbooking is when an airline sells more tickets than seats on on the plane. So they literally sell people seats that don't exist. It should be illegal.

While true, this isn't what happened in this case. He missed his flight THEN was on standby for the next morning. He didn't get on THAT flight either because it was full. I had sympathy for him until I reread the first bit where he missed his first flight. That's where it all went wrong.

Haley was trying to get out of Sin City Sunday night, but missed his American Airlines flight ... so they put him on standby Monday morning. Emphasis on standby.

You can literally check into any flight up to a day in advance online. You're posting here so I assume you know how to use a computer. Try this and next time you won't get bumped.

When I flew through San Fran it was easy because we had only three and a half hours of layover. Our flight took off over an hour late after just sitting on the tarmac forever. Then the TSA shut down all security in San Fran just as we were going through. So yeah, it's the passengers fault for missing the flights.

Well that's different. You have no control over your first flight. You were responsible enough to get on that first flight on time. Everything after that is the airline/airport's fault.
The first time I ever had a connecting flight I thought I'd have to sit around a while but I literally only had enough time to get off the plane and walk to the other gate to board the next plane.

/I am probably judgmental about this because I once went on vacation with someone who showed up just as they were about to close the gate. I was seconds away from deciding to get on the plane alone.

Your first mistake is going thought SFO. In ideal conditions SFO can land two planes at a time. Guess what happens when a humming bird crosses a runway?  No longer ideal conditions and FAA restricts landing to one plane at a time.

Connecting flight. Plane arrived a little late. You now have 30 minutes to get off one plane, figure out where you need to be in an airport you've never been in before, haul ass from one end of the airport to the other, and board the other plane. Not on the plane when it's time to leave? Not their problem.

I made damn sure to show up early for that first flight though. I don't fly much so I need the extra time to get my sh*t together.

Isn't it like a 4 hour drive from Vegas to LA?
Also maybe all the AA fights were booked, but I have to believe there's at least one other carrier that services that route...
Royalties from Forrest Gump should cover that Southwest upgrade to A boarding group, ya'd think.
