The focus of this paper is on understanding the relative valuation of non-monetary and monetary characteristics of an itinerary based on revealed preference data. A discrete choice modeling approach is followed. The research presented makes use of a number of datasets: a dataset that contains tickets bookings through computer reservation systems (CRS) for November 2006, a dataset with fares observed in the period September 2006 - November 2006 for flights departing in November 2006 on 70 origin-destination pairs and the Official Airline guide (OAG). They have been combined to form a comprehensive dataset for the analysis of itinerary choice.From this research it is concluded that the contribution to utility of fare is large: in a direct itinerary fare yields the largest contribution to utility, together with departure time. In an average non-chosen itinerary, the largest contribution to utility is given by a transfer. Show more
