Market Share Of Big 6?

Sat Sep 29, 2001 10:41 am

Hey, does anyone know the 2001 or 2000 combined market share of the US' top 6 airlines (AA, UA, DL, NW, CO, US)? In such an oligopolistic economy it must be a large number.

Go to the US Dept of Transportation - they've got data on this - I did an Economics thesis using market share data from there, so it's solid and credible.

Thanks Teej13, but the "Dotbot" search service on the DOT's website leaves a little to be desired and is having a hard time finding anything of relevance.

if you have experience with the dot website or remember seeing something somewhere, perhaps you can help?

It is approx 71% of the total ASMs controlled in the US domestic market by the big 6.


From the 2000 DOT statistics published on the website.

That does not include the commuter carriers that operate as codeshares by the big 6 partners.
