ADVANCED AIRLINE PLANNING MODELS--A TOOL FOR DEVELOPING REGULATORY POLICY (STUDIES IN THE ECONOMICS OF FEDERAL TRANSPORTATION POLICIES, NUMBER 6)

This paper introduces a much more detailed economic theory of the firm for carriers who supply transportation services over a network of markets. Three levels of analysis are defined for transportation economics--a system level, a market level, and a network level. One particular airline model for analysis at the network level is introduced, and then applied to a study of a potential liberalization of route authority for Continental Airlines--a medium-sized U.S. airline presently restricted to routes generally in the south-western portions of the U.S.A. /Author/
