This class covers the history of the US airline industry, focusing on the economics driving deregulation in 1978, and the major innovations since. It also addresses the major economic basis of airline pricing, and other decisions that often look unrealistic and confusing to customers. This class was offered in Fairfax in fall 2017 and was very well received.
Ben Baldanza has a 30+ year career in the US airline industry and has held senior level positions with multiple airlines. From 2005-2016, he was the CEO of Spirit Airlines and created North America's first “ultra low cost” carrier. He now lives in Northern Virginia and stays active in the industry with board and consulting work. Ben is an adjunct professor of economics at Mason where he teaches a class called “Airline Economics.”
