Passengers denied boarding by the largest U.S. air carriers 2000-2018

The time line shows the number of passengers denied boarding (voluntary and involuntary) by the largest U.S. air carriers from 2000 to 2018. In 2018, almost 12,000 passengers were denied boarding without their consent by the largest U.S. air carriers.
Even though the number of people denied boarding is decreasing, the United passenger fiasco that happened in April 2017 raises questions on how the leading U.S. airlines treat their customers.
