Abstract

US airlines play a large role in the efficient operation of the national air transportation system. Little, however has been written about how airline operations management decisions are made. This paper presents the results of contextual inquiries conducted on three Sector Operational Managers at a major flag carrier. Sector Operational Managers were found to play a key role at both minimizing disruptions to the NAS and in speeding the recovery at the airline level of air traffic following the conclusion of disruptions.
