Journal of Airline Operations and Aviation Management <p><strong>Important Notice: There is NO submission fee/subscription fee/readeship fee/ Article-processing fee. All the services provided by this Journal are fully-free of cost. </strong><br /><br />The world is connected through globalization. Due to this fact, interactions by air transportation are increasing rapidly. Aviation is a key component of the global economy, and airline operations are considered one of the most important criteria in evaluating national economic growth. The term ‘Management’ is commonly used in our everyday business. However, the term ‘Aviation Management’ may seem unfamiliar. As the aviation industry is unique from its environment, there is a need to specify the focus on applying general management in the aviation industry. Considering the importance of aviation management in airline operations, there will be numerous interesting topics to be studied in advance. In this Journal, we invite all papers that are related to aviation management and airline operations. The author's contribution to this topic will not only be significant to this Journal, but also for future developments in aviation management and airline operations.</p> <p><strong>Journal of Airline Operations and Aviation Management (ISSN: 2949-7698)</strong> is a scholarly publication for publishing and disseminating research, academic discoveries, and professional analysis on all aspects of airline operations and aviation management.

A Review of Factors Affecting Parallel Pricing <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Parallel pricing refers to the practice of firms making independent pricing decisions to match each other’ prices. This paper provides plausible economic intuitions about the market characteristics that affect the emergence and persistence of airline parallel pricing behavior by reviewing and synthesizing the relevant factors identified in the industrial organization literature as influencing cooperative outcomes or tacit collusion. One of the key findings of this paper is that the combination of high price transparency, quick price response, and repeated interactions among competing airlines can make parallel pricing as a self-evident outcome, even in the presence of information asymmetries, cost discrepancies, variations in capacity and service quality, as well as fierce market competition. Another finding is that as personalized pricing becomes more prevalent, the likelihood of success of parallel pricing may decrease. It remains unclear what other forms of cooperative outcomes will emerge as the industry continues to adapt to changing technological and market landscapes. With these findings, this paper contributes to the groundwork for developing a comprehensive model of parallel pricing in the airline industry.</p> </div> </div> </div> Toru Hasegawa Copyright (c) 2024 2024-04-05 2024-04-05 3 1 8 23 10.56801/jaoam.v3i1.2
