[Abstract] I plan to cover two topics in this seminar, which shall give the students an understanding of how operations research methods help airlines in their daily business.

[Topic #1] Variable Pricing for Simultaneous Optimization of Fares and Seat Allocations
Pricing Decision Support has become one of the major focus areas for both academic research and practical applications in recent years. We will discuss several key components of that concept from strategic fare optimization to dynamic pricing. In particular we will introduce the concept of Variable Pricing that allows simultaneously optimize both fares and allocations. We will present simulation results indicating significant revenue generating opportunities and describe several avenues for further development. We will also share our experience of implementing this concept and offer a few recommendations on the key factors that should be taken into account for successful adoption.

[Topic #2] Challenges in Airline Product and Resource Management
Decision support systems have been developed for airline industry over the last 40 years and have reached significant complexity, optimality and automation level. However, in the majority of cases these systems have been developed in silos, so there is still a lot of potential in integration of these systems to improve performance, efficiency and accuracy. We will discuss some specific use cases for such integration and recent efforts Sabre went through.
