    This paper presents an airline overbooking model at a class level for one service compartment±cabin. Class level demand data is used to determine the number of bookings that can be taken for each class. The model is optimised through the use of multi-dimensional search routines. The control level model developed is tested with data supplied by Ireland's national airline, Aer Lingus. The model shows a signi®cant improvement over previous methods employed by Aer Lingus and was subsequently adopted by the airline.
