AN ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF ROUTE RESTRICTION REMOVAL AND DISCRETIONARY AUTHORITY: THE TRANSITION TO A LESS-REGULATED ENVIRONMENT. VOLUME I

The purpose of this study is to develop and provide data on the consequences to be expected during a transition to greater competition in scheduled interstate air transportation. The conditions studied included the removal of all the certificate restrictions the CAB has placed on existing carriers and, simultaneously, a limited discretionary expansion of carriers' existing route structures. The analysis was performed in two stages. In stage one, a profile of each trunk line and local service carrier was developed. In stage one, a profile of each trunk line and local service carrier was developed. In stage two, the consequences of probably entry and exit scenarios were projected for each carrier, for each of the markets it serves, in terms of load factors, ASM', RPM's, and flight frequencies. Each carrier's market-by-market performance was then summed to yield carrier system aggregates. Volume I is a description of the analysis and a summary of the projections made and conclusions reached. Existing regulations are reviewed.
