I am conducting research on airfares in concentrated markets (i.e. hubs). Can anyone tell me how one goes about calculating fare per passenger mile on a specific carrier at a specific airport. That is, WHAT is the necessary data, WHERE can I find the necessary data that goes into the calculation, and HOW do I then use the data to calculate the yield? I truly appreciate all responses that helps to shed light on this for me.

Economics Prof. Steven Morrison has published a few books on the subject, which include some of the equations you may be interested in. When I wrote a paper last semester on airline deregulation, I used some of his books. Link to my paper below and you'll find links to his research. Or just do a web search for "Steven Morrison"

Wow...thanks for all that input guys! All of your tips should come in handy. Up to now, I have been working with the bts site, which is somewhat complex to navigate. They have so much data, but yes, thankfully I have Acrobat and the college network allows one to download quickly! I am, however, starting to figure some things out. I will also use the DOT site that you refer to Flycmh. Once again, thanks to Jeremy, Segmentking, and FLYCmh!
