These airlines bump the most passengers involuntarily (United isn’t No. 1)

United Airlines UAL, -1.13% is currently under a lot of pressure after it had a passenger dragged off one of its planes because it wanted his seat for a United employee on April 9. Such events are high profile, but the forcible removal of a passenger is rare for airlines.

The act of involuntary ‘bumping’ or denying a passenger to board without a choice is tracked by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics for U.S. airlines. These removals represent a small percentage of total airline boardings in the U.S. (approximately 0.009%), and there has been noticeable improvement since 2008.
