3 Reportedly they were not overbooked but wanted to use the flight to move 4 dead heads to another airport. The "auction" for volunteers went up to $800 before they ordered 4 people off the flight. The other three complied. They are legally authorized to offer up to $1350 for domestic flights. I'm sure they would have gotten takers. I'm guessing American is going to get more than $5,400 in bad PR here.

6 It woulds been cheaper for UAL if they'd booked the dead heads on SWA, probably would have gotten there faster too.
