The Pricing and Competitive Strategies of U.S. Airlines
Douglas, Evan J. (1989) The Pricing and Competitive Strategies of U.S. Airlines. The Journal of Applied Business Research, 5(2), pp. 23-29.
This paper argues that price competition is inevitable in the airline markets because passenger air service is a "search good." For the same reason, the optimal long run competitive strategy for the airline is "cost leadership," although qualitative advantages should be exploited by a differentiation strategy in the short run. The airlines have devised a variety of creative pricing strategies which are analyzed for their economic content.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
