|Quoting FlyGuyClt (Reply 1):|
Most airlines have a computer program that tracks the flights and the no show rates. The program then takes control of how many seats to actually book on the flight. Sometimes in rare ocassions, a flight becomes over booked and someone with flexible plans gets a voucher. (this is a recording)

What are normal sanctions for no-show?
|Quoting FraT (Reply 8):|
the problem for many airlines are not the no show pax with tickets, it's those without tickets.
People going to travel agencies asking for a fare to any destination. The travel agency makes a booking and sometimes even puts in a fake ticket number. The customer never shows up again and the agent forgets about the booking.
