BERLIN - International airlines have defended the overbooking of flights after the practice was thrown into the spotlight by videos of a United Airlines passenger being dragged off a plane in Chicago this week.

The incident on flight 3411 air max 2017 sale online , in which law enforcement officials were called in to remove the passenger to help make way for crew members, has proved embarassing for United and its CEO Oscar Munoz but also raises questions about policies across the industry.

Overbooking, where airlines sell tickets for more seats than available to account for the likelihood of no-shows, is a common practice and some U.S. lawmakers have called in the wake of the United incident for new rules to make it more difficult.

Yet carriers say it allows them to keep costs, and thus ticket prices, down.

"If airlines were no longer allowed to overbook air max sale online , fares would likely rise as airlines would have to pass on the costs of more empty seats to consumers," the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in a paper published on Thursday.

"Banning the practice of overbooking will reduce already thin margins, and could reduce connectivity in turn," IATA said.

Behind overbooking is a degree of calculation.

Airlines use historical flight data to calculate the expected no-show rate for each route. For example, business travelers may switch flights at the last minute, but those traveling on summer holidays are less likely to change plans.


If more people than expected show up nike air max 2018 sale outlet , airlines ask for volunteers to miss the flight in exchange for compensation. If not enough volunteer, airlines will select passengers to bump on to an alternative flight, typically before boarding.

In the United States in 2016, around 475,000 passengers, or 0.07 percent of travelers nike air max 2017 sale outlet , were denied boarding due to overbooked flights. Of that, 40,000 were classed as involuntary.

The U.S. Transportation Department said it was the lowest rate of involuntary denials since it began tracking the issue in 1995.

Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian defended the practice on Wednesday, saying its denied boarding rate was only about 1 in 100,000 passengers in 2016.

To its industry proponents, overbooking has paid off.

In 2005 nike air max sale outlet , planes were on average 75 percent full. That has increased to around 80 percent in the last couple of years. IATA said this month that ticket prices have fallen about 10 percent in real terms over the past year.

Not everyone follows the policy. JetBlue and Ryanair make a point of saying they do not overbook flights, though the former's denied boarding rate has risen recently after it switched to smaller planes, meaning fewer seats were available than planned.

For the industry as a whole there remains a risk of alienating consumers. Liberum analyst Gerald Khoo said airlines get it right most of the time, but noted: "Ultimately, this episode is a failure of United's procedures, but it has shone an unwelcome light air max 2018 sale outlet , for the airlines, on one of the industry's 'dark arts'".

NANNING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopian runner Degefa Negewo on Saturday won an international half marathon in South China's Nanning city, while Kenyan Gladys Chemweno won the women's category.

Negewo clocked one hour, two minutes and 55 seconds for the men's title, beating two Kenyans to the second and third positions by one and two seconds respectively.

On women's part air max 2017 sale outlet , Chemweno finished the 21.0975km course in one hour, 13 minutes and one second.

Joining in Nanning Half Marathon for the first time, Negewo said it is a pity that he didn't break the course's record.

"The runners have all done well, but many slopes had added the difficulty," he said.

Including 101 foreign participants, more than 9 air max sale outlet ,000 professional and amateur runners took part in the men's and women's half marathon, 10km, 4km and sport walking races held in the capital city of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

After being foggy for the past few days, Nanning's weather cleared up in time for the race.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden urged graduating Yale University students on Sunday to avoid questioning the motives of others in the search for common ground.

At a time when critics say Washington, D.C., is hamstrung by partisanship and an inability to compromise nike air max 2018 sale clearance , Biden told the more than 1,200 students and their families and friends to "try to look beyond the caricature of the person with whom you have to work."
