If that wasn’t enough to set off the flying public, it was later released that United was simply making room for four employees from a sister airline. Oops.
So apparently, airlines are allowed to sell more tickets than they have seats for on any given airplane and if everybody shows up they have the right to tell you there is no seat available, even though you’ve already paid for your seat. That hardly seems fair.
But here is the good news, heaven won’t be overbooked, Jesus has already secured your spot, you just have to claim it, and you will never get bumped. And they won’t break your guitar either.
