Product Description

Review

The systematic and concise approach of this book makes it very enjoyable for readers learning the A to Z of airline economics, as well as developing a deeper understanding of this vibrant industry. Flying Off Course is a thought provoking book that should be essential reading for anyone interested in the airline industry.

  • Dr Fariba Alamdari, Vice President of Boeing Commercial Airplanes

Flying off Course captures perfectly the complexity of international aviation and the state of the industry. Only someone with an intimate knowledge of airlines could have produced a book of this range and depth, covering everything to do with the economics of flying – from the cyclical nature of the business to the role of technology, from the regulatory environment to product planning, and from demand forecasting to fare pricing.

  • James Hogan, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Airways

Doganis once more lifts the bonnet of the international airline industry to examine its workings in detail, with the expertise of a seasoned insider. Relevant and essential reading for anyone interested in why this unique industry continues to generate tremendous consumer value yet at the same time destroys shareholder value

  • Brian Pearce, Chief Economist at IATA

Reading Flying Off Course is like going through a dedicated refresher course on our business followed by a profound discussion of its latest challenges. A must read to anyone involved in this amazing industry.

  • Fernando Abs da Cruz Souza Pinto, President Air Portugal

Because it covers so many aspects of airline economics and marketing, it should be on the desk or in the bookcase of every airline or airport executive, whatever their own area of expertise

Format: Paperback
This book deals which what could be a very dry subject however it has been written in such a style that makes it very readable. This latest edition to the excellent series of books written by Doganis explores current factors affecting the operation of airlines and a new edition to the book is a section dedicated to low cost carriers which is essential reading given the rising number of airlines operating low cost models. An essential read for anyone who is studying aviation marketing or economics.

I used this book in my first year of Uni and so I invested in this in my 2nd year. It is extremely useful if doing a transport degree or wanting to know more about the industry. The author breaks down the information into sizeable chunks so that the reader is able to understand the information.

I have previous editions of this book and am very pleased with the fourth edition which contains much new information on the industry. Doganis is an author with great credibility and this book is well written and easy to follow.

HASH(0x959146b4) out of 5 stars Interesting treatise of a boring subject 31 Dec. 2011
By CFI Esq. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is the required text for Advanced Aviation Economics in the MBA program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Doganis applies the tedious study of microeconomics specifically to the airline industry. My only complaint is that for an industry which changes everyday, the data are somewhat stale. Hence, my three star rating. Although there is a smattering of 2009 facts in the book. However, the book should have a yearly update. Fortunately, there is a great deal of supplemental data available free of charge from a multitude of airline industry websites.
