Slot Allocation Methods to Compare
for assigned routes
for cancelled flights
What happens if A is assigned (1,2,3,4,5) and B is assigned (6,7,8,11)? 9 and 10 are cancelled, but neither depart from nor arrive at LAX!
-> Combine flights that neither depart from nor arrive at GDP airport into “subroutes”
More reducible delay captured in longer, more severe GDPs
It is unclear whether a single airline benefits from being more cautious. Results display a high degree of randomness.
Increasing the number of cautious airlines seems to increase total delay.
Increasing the number of predictive airlines seems to increase total delay, but results also display a great deal of randomness.
Time to “slot” routes, generate route delays, and solve IP
