Efficiency of US airlines: A strategic operating model
Journal of Air Transport Management, 2015, vol. 43, issue C, 46-56
This paper applies the unoriented DEA network methodology to measure US airlines' performance relative to that of peer airlines and identifies the sources of its inefficiency. The analysis of the results suggests that major US airlines are more efficient than national US airlines in spending operating expenses and gaining operating revenue, but there is no significant difference in their service supply and demand efficiencies.
