The advent of advanced computerized reservations systems in the late 1970s most notably Sabre allowed airlines to easily perform cost-benefit analyses on different pricing structures leading to almost perfect price discrimination in some cases (that is filling each seat on an aircraft at the highest price that can be charged without driving the consumer elsewhere).
Increasingly since 1978 US airlines have been reincorporated and spun off by newly created and internally led management companies and thus becoming nothing more than operating units and subsidiaries with limited financially decisive control. Among some of these holding companies and parent companies which are relatively well known are the UAL Corporation along with the AMR Corporation among a long list of airline holding companies sometime recognized worldwide. Less recognized are the private equity firms which often seize managerial financial and board of directors control of distressed airline companies by temporarily investing large sums of capital in air carriers to rescheme an airlines assets into a profitable organization or liquidating an air carrier of their profitable and worthwhile routes and business operations.
