Which airline is most likely to bump passengers from their flight?

American Airlines network has the highest number of passengers involuntarily denied boarding (2,816)

 

With overbooked flights and lack of staff, it’s common for travelers to be involuntarily bumped from their flights.

The FinanceBuzz team knows just how unpredictable air travel can be – in hopes of getting everyone home for the holidays, they analyzed data from 2020 from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics to determine: which airlines are most likely to bump their passengers, the airlines that offer compensation most often, and which airlines pay the most money for involuntary bumps.

Here’s an overview of the key findings:

  • American Airlines network has the highest number of passengers involuntarily denied boarding (2,816) – Southwest Airlines comes in 2nd at about 398 passengers
  • Three airlines (Hawaiian Airlines Network, Southwest Airlines, and American Airlines Network) compensate nearly 100% of passengers bumped from their flights
  • Hawaiian Airlines Network offers the highest compensation (an average of $920) if you’re bumped from a flight. On the other hand, Delta Airlines has the lowest compensation average at about $392.
