Delta incurred a $750,000 fine Wednesday for not compensating passengers when passengers were involuntarily bumped from overbooked flights. According to a Department of Transportation spokesman, the carrier will use $425,000 of the fine to buy tablets so it can document practices that occur when a flight is oversold. The carrier was supposed to look for volunteers to give up their seats on oversold flights, but failed to do so, which resulted in the fine.
