Abstract: Operating disruptions result in enormous costs across spatial-temporal networks. For instance, air traffic disruptions result in flight delays, cancellations, passenger misconnections, creating high costs to aviation stakeholders. Businesses often design recovery plans in response to past disruptions while preparing for future disruptions. However, future disruptions often can only be characterized partially and probabilistically. We propose a joint stochastic reactive and proactive approach to disruption management (SRPDM), which optimizes airline disruption recovery given partial and probabilistic forecasts of future congestion…

Noah Gans — Overbooking with Endogenous Demand

Authors: Rowena Gan, Noah Gans, Gerry Tsoukalas Abstract: Using airlines as a backdrop, we study optimal overbooking policies with endogenous customer demand, when customers internalize their expected cost of being bumped. We first consider the traditional setting in which compensation for bumped passengers is fixed and booking limits are the airline's only form of control. We provide sufficient conditions under which demand endogeneity leads to lower overbooking limits in this case. We then consider the broader problem of joint control…
