[en] We develop an econometric model to analyze the real-life impact of two robust scheduling approaches, namely limiting hub connectivity and implementing swap opportunities, based on a broad dataset of the U.S. domestic market. Our analysis is from a novel aircraft routing perspective. We confirm a delay-driving effect of direct hub connectivity and a delay-reducing effect of swap opportunities. Indirect hub connectivity provides airlines with another approach to limit delays. We furthermore contrast that the business model of Southwest Airlines cannot leverage the delay-reducing effects resulting from swap opportunities. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
