OP - You will get better information with the date, departure, arrival, and flight number.

But, to be frank, overbooking information is not particularly useful as it rarely results in an oversale. To put this in context, for 2018-Q1, AA boarded over 35 Million passengers and involuntarily denied boarding to 483 passengers. Of those, 177 were due to the aircraft being downsized. Taking all reasons, this amounts to 0.001% (1/1000 th of 1%) of passengers..

People worry about this, but it tends to be less likely a reason for them not to travel than getting sick or injured and being unable to travel.
