OK, trying to figure this out. Below is a route by another airline. He is the sole operator. He has twice the seats for demand. How is hes not losing his shirt? How does this work? Does it have to do with hubs?
I got the gist about hubs. They provide for connecting passengers who take otherwise unsold seats at half price. How does this work? Passengers go from point A to point B. If point B is a hub, do some of them decide to connect to somewhere else? How is this decided? Can I get a hub in a low cost city, shuttle in pass in small planes from little markets and connect them all through the hub? Or connect from a small hub to a big city hub?
Saw this in an old post. What does it mean?
13. Tweak to assign flights
Here I will hand over an Excel spreadsheet so you can quickly calculate the frequency of flights you should assign to every route. First you fill up all your aircraft capacities on Y seating. After that, you only put the daily demand, and you’ll have the result of how many flights you should assign to that route with all the aircraft you have.
