As it is known, the passengers on that flight were told that more tickets were sold than there was seats in the plane ("Overbooking" — 112 International). Due to this fact, people were asked to free four places for the airline employees. Airline offered another flight, hotel accommodation and compensation. However, nobody answered the request.
