  • Chi, Zhihang (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1991], 1991)
    As airline industry grows and air traffic increases drastically, terminal airspace around busy airports is becoming more and more crowded. To accommodate the soaring demand for use of airports, a plausible and profitable ...
  • Ezekiel, Solly (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1985], 1985)
    A new approach to presenting Air Traffic Control (ATC) situation information to controllers has been devised and implemented. The approach allows the controller to spend more time analyzing traffic trends by decreasing the ...
  • Roth, Emily Jane (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1979], 1979)
    Introduction: In the past several years many attempts have been made to model the probabilistic nature of airport runway operations using a queueing-theoretic approach to runway modeling. Early studies were limited by ...
  • Endoh, Shinsuke (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1982], 1982)
    Introduction: The threat of midair collisions is one of the most serious problems facing the air traffic control system and has been studied by many researchers. The gas model is one of the models which describe the expected ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Dodge, Steven Malcolm.; Faulkner, Henry B.; Glendinning, I.; Hays, Anthony P.; Simpson, R.; Swan, William M.; Taneja, Nawal K.; Vittek, Joseph F. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1973, 1973)
    Introduction: In 1971, the joint Department of Transportation, National Aeronautics and Space Administrations, Civil Aviation Research and Development Policy Study (CARD) Report, identified the problems of providing air ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, MA : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1979], 1979)
    Noise due to aircraft was considered to be a potential problem as far back as 1952, when the Doolittle Commission established by President Truman urged that a major effort be made to reduce aircraft noise. With the 'advent ...
  • 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 ...
  • Taneja, Nawal K. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1968], 1968)
    Introduction: The purpose of this study is to investigate how airlines share the passengers, attracted to air transportation. The percentage of these passengers, that one airline will carry in any given market, where it ...
  • Thiriez, Herv (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1969, 1969)
    The problem of airline crew scheduling is studied, the different problems composing it are formulated and solution techniques are offered. Special emphasis is given to the set covering problem appearing in the rotation ...
  • Davis, James E. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1989], 1989)
    The Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 has not only affected the way airlines compete with each other, it has also changed the distribution channels that were once rigidly controlled by the airlines, travel agents and Civil ...
  • Williamson, Elizabeth Louise ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1992], 1992)
    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 control the number of seats made available in each fare class, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Clarke, Michael D. D.; Naryadi, Yudi. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1995], 1995)
    Introduction: Airline operations are generally handled in two phases, strategic and tactical. Strategic operations are concerned with schedule planning. Given the desired schedule of services to be offered to passengers ...
  • Holm, Carsten ([Cambridge, MA : Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1995], 1995)
    Since the "product" of an airline cannot be stored, the value of every seat which is left empty upon departure is lost forever or "spoiled". In order to compensate for the economic effects of passengers holding a confirmed ...
  • Botimer, Theodore Charles (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1993], 1993)
    Airlines offer combinations of price level and purchase restrictions, or fare products, designed to best maximize revenues on their flights. This dissertation provides the first comprehensive examination of the differentiated ...
  • Lee, Anthony Owen (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1990], 1990)
    In this thesis, we develop the necessary statistical framework to produce accurate forecasts of total bookings in a particular fare class on a specific flight number departing on a given date at various points before ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Blumer, Terry P. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1975], 1975)
    This is a brief account of research by CAB staff. The success of Air New England from the beginning of its corporate life to the summer of 1974, when it was offered a certificate of public convenience and necessity by the ...
  • Odoni, Amedeo R.; Vittek, Joseph F. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    This report examines the leading theoretical studies not only of airport peak-hour pricing but also of the congestion costs associated with airport delays and presents a consistent formulation of both. The report also ...
  • Vittek, Joseph F. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : M.I.T. Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1974], 1974)
    Introduction: In the decade between 1962 and 1972, certificated air service was deleted at about 250 points in the United States. In some of these cases, the service was no longer needed because of improved highway access ...
  • Butler, James Franklin (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1987], 1987)
    An air traffic-control (ATC) simulator for the evaluation of flow management strategies was designed and implemented in Lisp. The ATC system is modeled as a network of queueing systems. Flights are generated from a flight ...
