SOME ELEMENTS OF THE AIRLINE FLEET PLANNING PROBLEM

Although many optimizing models have been presented for fleet planning, little success at implementation has been achieved. Examined in detail are some important problem elements that have either been assumed away, or modeled too simply, or not considered at all. Included are: year-to-year continuity conditions, integer variables, isolation of aircraft, non-linear cost and revenue functions, passenger flows, minimum service levels, multiple criteria and problem size. Some suggestions are outlined for future model development.
