Customers: EasyJet Overbooked Flights

Britain’s largest budget airline is accused of selling nonexistent seats at the peak of the U.K.’s busiest aviation season. EasyJet is also accused of breaking up families for travel, and forcing others to take indirect routes to their destinations. While those affected have taken to Twitter to air their grievances, easyJet is claiming it “will only overbook by one or two passengers per flight.” A spokesman for the airline said 2.6 million easyJet passengers a year fail to show up for booked flights and that it is “extremely rare” for other passengers to be denied boarding because of overbooking.
