Revenue Optimization Optimize price and availability to account for segment, willingness to pay and competition

During the last decade, most airlines have focused on availability optimization – looking at how they can optimize revenue management and inventory. However, there is significant opportunity around pricing because for an airline, setting a price for a product is one of the most important decisions they will make. Too often, airlines are pricing products reactively, based solely on competitor pricing, but there is an opportunity to ensure tactical and strategic pricing decisions are made with the customer segment, willingness to pay and competition in mind. If an airline wants to achieve total revenue optimization (TRO), it must look beyond traditional revenue management and tap into adopting mature pricing and retailing practices that consider a more scientific approach.
