  • Tan, Jin C. ([Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1994, c1994)
    Driving the development of increasingly sophisticated methods of seat inventory control are the complex fare and route structures evident in airline operations today. Most control methods are currently based on an individual ...
  • Alhanatis, Robert Elias (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1994, c1994)
    The purpose of this thesis is to examine the nature of aircraft surface motion on the airport surface during normal operations. Twelve hours of radar data, gathered by MIT Lincoln Laboratories from Logan airport in Boston, ...
  • Simpson, R. W.; Ausrotas, Raymond A. (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1991, c1991)
    Preface: It was part of a continuing series of research work aimed at creating models for estimating Collision Risk for ATC operations which can be used by the Federal Aviation Administration and ICAO to establish safe ...
  • Sadoune, Michel (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1987, c1987)
    Air-traffic congestion and frequent saturation of major airports require improved Air Traffic Control procedures to make the flow of traffic more uniform and increase system capacity. Advanced technologies allow an increased ...
  • Lajoie, Ronnie M. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Paper Airplane Project, c1987, c1987)
    Preface: This document provides the user with a step-by-step guide to using Paper Airplane, Version IV. Although this program can be used to design any system (once given the proper set of design equations), this manual ...
  • Lajoie, Ronnie M. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1987, c1987)
    The problems of the integration of engineering models in computer-aided preliminary design are reviewed. This paper details the research, development, and testing of modifications to Paper Airplane, a LISP-based computer ...
  • Kolb, Mark A. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1986, c1986)
    In the solution of problems in preliminary design, it often becomes necessary to solve systems of equations. An immediate example from aeronautical design is the frequent need to perform several iterations around the gross ...
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology.; \02BBAlyah.; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Flight Transportation Laboratory ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory], c19834, c19834)
    Preface: Alia: The Royal Jordanian Airline is very pleased to present this collectiont of papers originally presented at the international conference entitled, "Regionalism in International Air Transportation: Cooperation ...
  • Fernandez de la Torre, Pablo E. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1999], 1999)
    Airline alliances are one of the critical issues faced by the airline industry in the 1990s. In this thesis, an overview of the most significant impacts that the formation of alliances have brought to the industry-especially ...
  • Bratu, Stephane ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    A connecting passenger occupies a seat on each of the flight leg of his itinerary. Moreover, for a given fare class, the fare of a connecting passenger is lower than the sum of the fares of the local passengers on the ...
  • Clarke, Michael D. D. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    Airlines are constantly faced with operational problems which develop from severe weather patterns and unexpected aircraft or personnel failures. However, very little research has been done on the problem of addressing the ...
  • Lee Alex Yen Hung ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    The Passenger Origin / Destination Simulator (PODS) was used to investigate the competitive impacts of Origin-Destination control airline Revenue Management (RM) methods. Experiments performed included revenue performance ...
  • Charania Aamer ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    The decision to buy a fare that is higher than the desired fare, under the situation when the desired fare is not available, is known as sell-up. Passengers' willingness to sellup can have considerable impact on airline ...
  • Zickus, Jeffrey S. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    Airline revenue management entails protecting enough seats for late-booking, high-fare passengers while still selling seats which would have otherwise gone empty at discounted fares to earlier-booking customers. In the ...
  • Skwarek, Daniel Kew ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1996], 1996)
    The focus of revenue management research efforts has historically been on the development of seat optimizers which find revenue maximizing booking limits by fare class in a nested fare class structure. Significantly less ...
  • Nissenberg, James M. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1996], 1996)
    It is conventional wisdom among informed observers of the U.S. airline industry that the passengers who fly full-service, hub-and-spoke-style, "traditional" airlines like American, United and Delta are significantly different ...
  • Belobaba, Peter.; Skwarek, Daniel Kew.; Simpson, R. W.; Nissenberg, James M.; Ferea, James D.; Mathaisel, Dennis F. X.; Clarke, Michael D. D.; Idris, Husni Rifat.; Wei, Yuanyuan ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1996], 1996)
  • Wei, Yuanyuan ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1996], 1996)
    In the airline industry, it is customary for carriers to offer a wide range of fares for any given seat in the same cabin on the same flight. In order to maximize the total network revenue, the airline practices so-called ...
  • Mette, Matthias (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1995, 1995)
