In view of the congestion apparent at many international airports the ownership of slots at certain airports (the right to take-off or land an aircraft at a particular time of day or night) has become a significant tradable asset for many airlines. Clearly take-off slots at popular times of the day can be critical in attracting the more profitable business traveler to a given airline s flight and in establishing a competitive advantage against a competing airline.
Computers also allow airlines to predict with some accuracy how many passengers will actually fly after making a reservation to fly. This allows airlines to overbook their flights enough to fill the aircraft while accounting for no-shows but not enough (in most cases) to force paying passengers off the aircraft for lack of seats stimulative pricing for low demand flights coupled with overbooking on high demand flights can help reduce this figure. This is especially crucial during tough economic times as airlines undertake massive cuts to ticket prices to retain demand. 64
