When you pay for a seat on any airline, you are just renting that seat from the airline but ownership of that seat and what can be done with that seat still belongs to the airline. Secondly, lets take a look at overbooking. Even though the situation that happened was technically not an overbooking situation, it is legal for all airlines to overbook by a certain percentage. The Government allows this because on virtually every flight there are no-shows and cancellations.
