(insert my standard grumble that a graph of interval against ordinal is a line chart, only a graph of ordinal against ordinal can be a bumps chart)

It does seem strange that a profession that gave the world the "headline" style of abbreviation (where PRES IN SPEECH, PAY ROW means "the president caused a controversy by his remarks on teachers' pay in a speech last night") should have so failed to see that the headline of that graph should be PASSENGERS BUMPED.

Underneath the headline, in smaller text, could be the key that the numbers are 1/10,000, and the assurance that the proportion includes both voluntarily and involuntarily bumped passengers.

Maybe there's just a missing comma in the title: "Number of passengers per 10000, bumped" makes a bit more sense. Kinda.
