The solution to United’s overbooking disaster can be found in 1968

Posted: April 13, 2017 in news

The solution to equitable overbooking was written back in 1968…

“All that need happen when there is overbooking is that an airline agent distributes among the ticket-holders an envelope and a bid form, instructing each person to write down the lowest sum of money he is willing to accept in return for the next flight,” Simon wrote. “The lowest bidder is paid in cash and given a ticket for the next flight.”

That is not what happened, as anyone following the United saga will know by now.
