Crew Planning at Flying Tiger: A Successful Application of Integer Programming
This paper presents a successful application of integer programming to the scheduling of flight crews for a cargo airline. The crew planning process is discussed, the role of the set partitioning model is explained, and representative computational experience is reported. The success of this application is shown to rest upon improved problem conceptualization and decomposition rather than on any advances in solution techniques.
