I did a quick search on this topic but could not find any threads, so here goes...
it is known that at hub airports there are peak operations and dead time in between when operations run at low gear. Or even no ops at all (e.g., night curfews).
I wondered how does the airport, from a planning perspective categorize these time periods?
I made a short list that goes like this:
1 05:01-09:30 Morning
2 09:31-12:00 Day
3 12:01-16:00 Noon
4 16:01-18:00 Afternoon
5 18:01-00:00 Evening
6 00:01-05:00 Night
Is it a correct clustering?
Is it different in the "real world"? If so, how does it look?
