The COVID-19 crisis quickly brought the airline industry to a virtual standstill, as steep drops in demand forced unprecedented capacity adjustments. For an extended period, travel demand will be lower than pre-crisis levels, and travel patterns are likely to be very different. Amidst the high levels of uncertainty and volatility, airlines need to make trade-offs that affect flights, passengers, crew, ground staff, while optimizing asset utilization and profitability for economic recovery. How do they plan & execute a dynamic schedule based on volatile demand? How do they predict, in real time, the impact of each decision on the rest of the system?
