Delays at Logan Airport

1. A) Delay in minutes per plane:

Λ = 50| Λ = 55| Λ = 59|

6.54 minutes| 12.52 minutes| 60.5 minutes|

Delay costs:


Λ = 50 6.54min*($352 + 65%load*15passengers*$30.9)/60 = $71.20 Λ = 55 12.52min*($352 + 65%load*15passengers*$30.9)/60 = $136.31 Λ = 59 60.5min*($352 + 65%load*15passengers*$30.9)/60 = $658.72 Regional jet:

Λ = 50 6.54min*($672 + 65%*50passengers*$30.9)/60 = $182.71 Λ = 55 12.52min*($672 + 65%*50passengers*$30.9)/60 = $349.78 Λ = 59 60.5min*(672 + 65%*50passengers*$30.9)/60 = $1690.22 Conventional jet:

Λ = 50 6.54min*($1590 + 65%*150passengers*$30.9)/60 = $501.70 Λ = 55 12.52min*($1590 + 65%*150passengers*$30.9)/60 = $960.44 Λ = 59 60.5min*($1590 + 65%*150passengers*$30.9)/60 = $4641.11 B) According to the FAA definition a flight is delayed only if it arrives more than 15 minutes past schedule. Therefore, there are delay costs only in the case of an arrival rate of 59: Delay time = 60.5 – 15 = 45.5 minutes

Turboprop 45.5min*($352 + 65%load*15passengers*$30.9)/60 = $495.4 Regional jet 45.5min*($672 + 65%*50passengers*$30.9)/60 = $1271.16 Conventional jet 45.5min*($1590 + 65%*150passengers*$30.9)/60 = $3490.42 C) The FAA should have a more relaxed definition of delay.

D) Peak-period pricing does prove to be a potential solution to reduce the costs of over scheduling. As seen in our calculations, increasing the arrival rate per hour dramatically increases the costs incurred by the airport. Shown above, if peak-period pricing can even reduce the arrival rate from 55 to 50 during peak hours, hundreds of dollars can be saved as ...

    The Struggles of John Donne John Donne lived in a time of shifting ideas and changing trends, born in 1572 to a Roman Catholic family. The constant shifting of the Church of England’s religion – between Catholic, Donne’s family religion, and Protestant – almost created Donne’s destiny of a life caught between two worlds that he could not decide on. Duality – sacred and secular, church and state, body and soul summarize Donne’s time. Donne himself epitomizes the duality of being caught between his secular pursuits and his “fate” as a preacher as we can see in Holy Sonnet 9. In Donne
