Bazargan (business, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical U.) presents a revised and expanded edition of his text developed for use in an MBA course on airline planning and operation using optimization methodologies. He covers flight scheduling, fleet assignment, aircraft routing, crew scheduling, manpower planning, revenue management, fuel management systems, airline irregular operations, gate assignment, aircraft boarding strategies, issues of computational complexity, and simulation modeling for airlines and airports. For this new edition, cases studies using simulation modeling address the economic and operational justification for aircraft tow-tugs and airport runway-capacity planning. Requirements include a basic familiarity with statistics in general and normal distribution in particular.
