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.
