Southwest, which does not impose a penalty on cancellations or rebooking, has lots of no shows. I know this because my daughter worked in the industry and was on a message board where airline people traded info on particular loads for those who wanted to fly non-rev. Southwest overbooked more than most because of this, just like in the old days when you could change tickets easily.
