FACTORS INFLUENCING SCHEDULE RELIABILITY IN INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS

Scheduling problems encountered by an international airline operating long-distance routes between the northern and southern hemispheres are discussed. Timetable setting, which depends on curfews in effect at the airports of arrival and departure, is considered; variations in flight time due to more or less favorable wind components are also mentioned. Airport departure delays caused by aircraft defects, government authorities, passenger and baggage transport, ramp handling and crew relief problems also receive attention.
