thank you so much. they still wanted me to arrive at the regular scheduled departure times just in case they somehow get a flight out on time. seemed like a good time to use my united club passes. lots of school work to do and unlimited beer! what could be bad!!!  :D

good that you were productive and enjoyed the work time...
1) I'd still try to get some compensation
2) In the future, if you're in a rush you could take the earlier flight LAX > IAD and then a 20-30 minute cab ride (esp at 2am) to get your car in the BWI lot.

true but i had just flown RT lax to iad from baltimore last week and was not in the mood of going back there again. it really is a hassle, esp in my case since i wasnt really in such a rush....

No one can answer that question for you, but 7k miles < $100.

Sure you could take either voucher and try to sell it, but If I didn't have any BA travel planned, I'd take the miles.

Because they will be useful toward an award ticket. 4500 BA miles is one way short haul. $100 is not getting you that!
Assuming BA because of AJK
