S. Domestic Carrier in 2011 (in terms of passengers carried) Southwest established the standard for low-cost operations in many ways. It uses a standard fleet of aircraft to drive down training and maintenance costs and has flexible work rules that use personnel efficiently to do many tasks. To maximize the utilization of its fleet, it has historically tried to use uncongested airports with minimum delays, and to turn around aircraft in as little as 20 minutes at the gate. These operating policies directly affect airport planning.

Pilot union contract “scope clauses” required airlines to employ well-paid unionized pilots for any jet aircraft with over a certain number of seats, typically 70. With the development of 35- to 50-seat regional jets, airlines were able to hire lower-paid pilots to fly these smaller aircraft. S. domestic operations. As Fig. S. carriers on domestic flights grew to 1500 by 2006. The vast majority of these aircraft were EMB135, EMB145, and CRJ-100 and CRJ-200 aircraft, all with 50 seats or fewer. Contrary to conventional wisdom, these regional jets were used by hub airlines and their commuter partners primarily to increase the frequency of service from the hub to small spoke cities, not to over-fly the hubs with new nonstop services (Mozdzanowska, 2004).

For the vast majority of world airlines, the economic advantages of hub network operations have consistently outweighed their operational costs. There is little reason to expect the dominant hub-and-spoke network model to falter. There are undoubtedly still many routes in the world that can support new nonstop service by an LCC focused exclusively on serving local point-to-point traffic. However, as air travel markets mature and LCC costs rise, these opportunities will inevitably become scarcer.
