The rumour I heard was that the Jet* planning software is limited in that if a flight is overbooked, the data resets itself. Ie. if the a/c has 200 seats for example and the flight has 201 seats booked, the planner clocks itself and shows the pax numbers as 1! This fact was missed by (very green) dispatch and the crew, and was only picked up as fuel numbers were rechecked prior to going over the Bite. Whoops, not enough fuel, gotta divert.
