With all these people booking now there is no way they can honor this.  The only real hope was for them to shuit it down pretty quick and honor the few hundred that booked quick.
While you are right in theory, if the DOT doesn't allow them to cancel tickets, they are in quite a quandary. My theory is that they'll put the accounts in negative. But I don't know how much that'll help them

I was dumb and booked it from an account with I have 100,000 miles from.

 I should have booked it from one of my 1,000 mile accounts.

           Meanwhile... I guess we all have to wait and see what happens.

Why don't you book a ticket for way in advance?
Personally I am not 100% sure I would go if it does magically get honored.
But at least this way I have the option.
