The Airline Profit Cycle: A System Analysis of Airline Industry Dynamics

For decades, the air transport industry business cycle has been alternating between profits and losses. The magnitude of this cycle has been increasing over time, which may indicate expanding problems and a lack of lessons learned from the past. This book presents a system analysis of the profit cycle to help understand its causes and effects, and it offers potential solutions to produce higher and more stable profits. Specific topics covered include: persistence of the airline profit cycle; potential causes of the profit cycle; a System Dynamics model of profit development; profitability dynamics in model experiments; and conclusions and recommendations. The book will be useful for students, researchers, and practitioners in the airline industry.
