Question

An airline estimates that 6% of people booked on their flights
do **not** show up. If the airline books 75 people on
a flight for which the maximum number is 72, what is the
probability that the number of people who show up will exceed the
capacity of the plane?

Answer #1

An airline estimates that 94% of people booked on their flights
actually show up. The airline booked 73 people for a flight to
Hawaii. Let X = the number of people that actually show up for the
flight to Hawaii out of 73 bookings. a. [2 pts] What is the
probability that exactly 73 people actually show up? b. [2 pts]
What is the probability that at most 65 people actually show up? c.

An airline estimates that 80% of passengers who reserve the
tickets actually show up for the flights. Based on this
information, it has to decide how many tickets it will sell for
each flight, which is typically more than the number of seats
actually available. In the economy section of a particular
aircraft, 200 seats are available. The airline sells 225 seats.
What is the probability that more passengers will show up than
there are seats for?

past studies of airline industry show that only 85% of
passengers who book flights actually show up for the flight. the
airbus A380 the largest passenger plane holds 525 passengers. if
600 people to book a seat on the airbus what is the probability
that at most 525 actually show up for the flight in this binomial
situation

An airline overbooks a flight, selling more tickets for the
flight than there are seats on the plane (figuring that it’s likely
that some people won’t show up). The plane has 50 seats, and 60
people have booked the flight. Each person will show up for the
flight with probability 0.95, independently. Find the probability
that there will be enough seats for everyone who shows up for the
flight.

Airlines typically overbook flights because usually several
passengers don’t show up. Assume that one airline flies jets that
seat 200 passengers, and with overbooking, the numbers of
passengers that show up are approximately normally distributed with
mean 182 and standard deviation 8.
(a) What is the probability that there will not be enough seats
on any given flight?
Hint: How many people need to show in order for there not to be
enough seats?
(b)What is the 96th percentile of...

Because many passengers who make reservations do not show? up,
airlines often overbook flights? (sell more tickets than there are?
seats). A certain airplane holds 166 passengers. If the airline
believes the rate of passenger? no-shows is 6?% and sells 178
?tickets, is it likely they will not have enough seats and someone
will get? bumped? A)Use the normal model to approximate the
binomial to determine the probability of at least 167 passengers
showing up. B) Should the airline change...

An airline, believing that 4% of passengers fail to
show up for flights, overbooks. Suppose a plane will
hold 300 passengers, and the airline sells 310 tickets. What is the
probability the airline will not have enough seats, so someone gets
bumped? Round your answer to 3 decimal
places.

An airline believing that 5% of passengers fail to show up for
flights, overbook. Suppose a plane holds 255 passengers and the
airlines sells 265 tickets, what's the probability the airline will
not have enough seats so someone gets bumped?
b)find the exact probability using the binomial model
c)find an approx. probability using the normal approximation to
the binomial

Because many passengers who make reservations do not show up,
airlines often overbook flights (sell more tickets than there are
seats). A certain airplane holds 104 passengers. If the airline
believes the rate of passenger no-shows is 9% and sells 116
tickets, is it likely they will not have enough seats and someone
will get bumped?
1) Use the normal model to approximate the binomial to determine
the probability of at least 105 passengers showing up.
2) Should the airline...

Because many passengers who make reservations do not show up,
airlines often overbook flights (sell more tickets than there are
seats). A certain airplane holds
145
passengers. If the airline believes the rate of passenger
no-shows is
77%
and sells
156
tickets, is it likely they will not have enough seats and
someone will get bumped?
a. Use the normal model to approximate the binomial to
determine the probability of at least
146
passengers showing up.
b. Should the airline...
