Question

when someone buys a ticket for a flight the probability that they will not show up for the flight is .0995. An agent wants to book 242 people for a flight that can only hold 219 passengers. What is the usual number of people that will not show up for the flight? Please provide as much explanation as possible.

Answer #1

Probability that after booking a ticket the passenger will not arrive = 0.0995

Probability that after booking a ticket the passenger will arrive = 1 - 0.0995

= 0.9005

So, to find that how many passengers will not arrive we will do,

= 242 × 0.0995

= 24.079

= 24 peoples (approx)

So, to find that how many passengers will arrive we will do,

= 242 × 0.9005

= 217.921

= 218 (approx)

And the capacity of flight is 219, 218 passengers can easily travel.

**Check**

Total passengers = passengers that will arrive + passengers that won't arrive

= 218 + 24

= 242

On average, only 95% of people bought an airline ticket will
show up in the airport. In an airline’s flight, 400 people bought
tickets. What is the probability that the number of people coming
to the airport is at least 380 but no more than 390. (Use normal
approximation with continuity correction)

past studies of airline industry show that only 85% of
passengers who book flights actually show up for the flight. the

American Air Flight 2705 from New York to San Francisco has
seats for 340 passengers. An average of 5% if people with
reservations don’t show up, so American Air overbooks by accepting
350 reservations for the 340 seats. We can analyze this system by
using a binomial distribution with n = 350 and p = 0.95 (the
probability that someone with a reservation does not show up). Find
the probability that when 350 reservations are accepted for a
particular flight,...

(1 point) A certain airline has 170 seats available for a flight
from YYC (Calgary International Airport) to LAX (Los Angeles
International Airport). Because people with reservations do
not show up for their flight 11% of the time, the airline
always overbooks this flight. That is, there are more passengers
that have tickets on the flight than there are seats.
Suppose the airline has 183 passengers booked for 170 seats. Assume
one person showing up for the flight does not...

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.

on any given flight?
Hint: How many people need to show in order for there not to be
enough seats?

Assuming that you are going to overbook and that each person denied
a seat is compensated for $ 800, answer the following question.

Suppose that the probability that a passenger will miss a flight
is 0.0976. Airlines do not like flights with empty seats, but it
is also not desirable to have overbooked flights because passengers
must be "bumped" from the flight. Suppose that an airplane has a
seating capacity of 59 passengers.
(a) If 61 tickets are sold, what is the probability that 60 or
61 passengers show up for the flight resulting in an overbooked

United flight 15 from New York’s JFK to San Francisco uses a
Boeing 757-200 with 182 seats. Because some people with
reservations don’t show up, United can overbook by accepting more
than 182 reservations. If the flight is not overbooked, the airline
will lose revenue due to empty seats, but if too many seats are
sold and some passengers are denied seats, the airline loses money
from the compensation that must be given to bumped passengers.
Assume that there is...
