(Atlanta, GA) Delta Airlines is facing a $750,000 fine for violating rules that protect passengers who get bumped on oversold flights.

The Department of Transportation says Delta didn’t get volunteers before it bumped passengers.

The airline also didn’t give passengers written notice, telling them they have the right to be compensated with cash if they’re bumped.
