An Investigation into the Determinants of Flight Cancellations
This paper uses Bureau of Transportation data on 35 million US domestic flights between 1995 and 2001 to investigate the determinants of flight cancellations. The paper is novel in two regards, it focuses exclusively on flight cancellations, and it explores the service quality-flight revenue relationship. We find that carriers have some control over the occurrence of flight cancellations given that cancellations are significantly less likely on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and for the last flight of the day. There is some evidence linking cancellations with revenue. Copyright (c) The London School of Economics and Political Science 2006.
