With FICO optimization technology in place, American Airlines has improved long-term planning, critical resource allocation, asset management and scheduling decisions. Recent projects include:
- Responsive pricing: automatically calculate the best pricing offer for every ticket sold online based on the availability of the remaining seats and potential demand.
- Weather disruption recovery: re-routing flights that have been affected by weather in order to get passengers where they need to go despite severe weather conditions.
- Maintenance routing: revise daily schedules in order to get planes needing unplanned maintenance to the correct city with the necessary parts and mechanics.
