About the Author

John F. O'Connell (Frankie) is currently an airline lecturer in the department of Air Transport at Cranfield University. He comes from Co. Cork in Ireland and completed an MSc in Air Transport Management from Cranfield University and an MBA (Aviation) from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, later returning to Cranfield to complete a PhD on airline management. He is also a certified IATA instructor and holds a pilot's licence. Previously, Frankie worked for the Boeing commercial aircraft company as an analyst for a number of years and then for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (extended campus in California) as an airline lecturer for a further five years. While at Embry-Riddle, he regularly lectured at the NASA Ames research facility at Moffett Field. He has spent a large chunk of his time down through the years travelling to the world's airlines on behalf of IATA, the Arab Air Carriers Organization and Cranfield University in both an advisory and training capacity on areas such as strategy, management, marketing, cost reduction, distribution and low cost carrier operations. Dr George Williams was, until September 2009, Reader in Airline Economics at the Department of Air Transport, Cranfield University. He continues to lecture and research in the fields of Air Transport Economics and Regulation. George graduated with a BSc in Economics from City University in 1971, an MA in Transport Economics from Leeds University in 1972 and a PhD from Cranfield University in 1991. He joined the Air Transport Department at Cranfield University as a lecturer in 1995. George has extensive international lecturing experience and has written extensively exploring the impact of deregulation on the airline industry. In 1998 he was appointed Special Adviser to the UK House of Lords European Communities Committee enquiry into the Commission's proposals to extend its powers to apply existing competition provisions to air services between the EU and third countries. He has led major studies into airline service provision in Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK on behalf of the European Commission, Government departments, regulatory authorities, airlines and airport authorities. Whilst at Cranfield, George headed the Centre for Air Transport in Remoter Regions, which organises a biennial international Forum devoted to issues concerning air transport provision in Remoter Regions, the most recent of which took place in Bergen, Norway in April 2009. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
