Domestic airlines are bumping passengers off flights at the lowest rate since 1995 when this data began to be compiled, according to a new report from the Department of Transportation – a decline that may be attributed to the April incident when a passenger was dragged off a United Airlines flight. The 12 domestic carriers that report data on the number of passengers who are involuntarily denied boarding posted a bumping rate of 0.44 per 10,000 passengers during the second quarter of 2017. By comparison, the airlines posted a bumping rate of 0.62 per 10,000 passengers in both the second quarter of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017. The previous low had been 0.50 during the third quarter of 2002.
