The evaluation method of the schedule shall analyze the consistency of the timeline previously determined. After the traffic demand is allocated to the aircraft assigned to itineraries, the analyst investigates the resulting load factor for direction. If it appears to be unreasonably high or low, frequency changes will be made, the aircraft will be allocated an itinerary structure and the opportunities will be associated (“TRAFFIC FORECASTING AND”,2010).
