NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 05: Planes sit on the runway at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on June 5, 2017 in New York City. Part of what the White House is calling the president's "infrastructure week," President Donald Trump announced Monday a plan to privatize the nation's air traffic control system. If enacted, it would remove the job of tracking and guiding airplanes from the oversight of the Federal Aviation Administration.

There are a lot of things about airplane travel that can annoy passengers, and one of the big ones is getting bumped. Nobody likes it when an airline takes away your seat and rebooks you on a different flight.

Which airlines should you stay away from if you don’t want to be bumped?  Upgraded Points has just come out with their list of the Airlines Most Likely To Bump Passengers, looking at how many involuntary denied boardings happened per 100,000 people between the first half of 2018 to the first half of 2019.

Overall, the site found that American and Southwest both had the highest number of bumped passengers.
