The application of operations research to such problems of airline management as control of airport congestion, fleet planning, schedule elaboration and seat allocation, aircraft maintenance programs, fuel optimization, flight crew, cabin crew and reservations personnel management and procurement cost allocation, is discussed. Topics of the papers include the reduction of airport congestion by use of optimal runway configurations, an algorithm for planning short-haul aircraft fleets, the application to scheduling of a stochastic model of transportation demand, the management of spare-part inventories, a simulation of an aircraft maintenance program, short- and long-term fuel allocation planning, staffing of reservation and maintenance facilities, recruiting and training of pilots and development of cabin attendant work schedules.
