New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said the U.S. Transportation Department should suspend overbooking authority until a thorough review can be done. In a letter to Transportation Sec. Elaine Chao, the Republican governor pointed out that United operates 70% of its flights from Newark airport and said the overbooking practice has become “unconscionable.” He said passengers should not be subject to bumping except in the most extreme circumstances and not to accommodate employees of United Airlines. Christie has gone further than other Republicans in Congress and in the White House.
