Oliver Wyman in the Wall Street Journal’s Middle Seat Column

Nov 1, 2018

Data from Oliver Wyman’s PlaneStats was included in a Wall Street Journal Middle Seat column titled “A Low-Fare Loophole for International Travelers.”

The article explored a quirk in international aviation law which allows airlines to carry customers between two non-native countries which can lead to cheaper flights for consumers. This is usually allowed when a fuel stop is involved.

The article discusses how Singapore airlines, in addition to flying to Manchester, also offers flights between New York and Frankfurt and between Los Angeles and Tokyo. Korean Air carries 11% of the traffic between Tokyo’s Narita Airport and Honolulu, according to consulting firm Oliver Wyman’s PlaneStats.com.
