The question says it all, how do airlines overbook a flight, which they know has a certain amount of flights available for sale. Airline fault? Last minute seat blockages?

There is an average no show rate for the flights and you can book as long as this isn't reached.
|Quoting Airbuseric (Reply 3):|
The full-flex passenger gets the demanded seat, the low-fare Y-class passenger get another flight (later, or rerouted), but is compensated for it.
In the end, everybody is more or less happy The airline keeps all people satisfied.
