This solution applies activity-based costing methodology to allocate costs and revenue to calculate closed doors flight leg profitability, network contribution for network airlines, and network scenario planning.   This is needed for decisions such as aircraft assignment, schedule frequency, and demand pricing, taking into account the many variables such as the differing operating costs for flights on the same leg, depending on the time of day, aircraft type, weather conditions, and flight routing.  In the case of the more complex network airline, network contribution reporting takes into account the complexity of entire passenger journeys.
