Lufthansa Systems Blog - "NetLine/Sched" tag
The ability of offering passenger connections is one of the unique selling propositions of any network carrier. Enabling this USP requires a smart scheduling approach, in which the network goes through constant optimization and in which the individual itineraries (offered for purchase and booked already) are protected as good as possible. This blog post discusses reasons why minding passenger connections is so crucial, why modern scheduling systems often lack Origin and Destination (OnD) decision support and how smart system design can bridge this gap.
How do you balance punctuality vs. productivity? Within this three-part joint blog sequence my three colleagues and I share five approaches towards minimizing propagated delays and increasing aircraft utilization by robust scheduling.
