Theoretical Evidence of Existing Pitfalls in Measuring Hubbing Practices in Airline Networks

This paper tries to assess the error committed when measuring an airline’s hubbing degree through spatial concentration indicators, such as Gini, Theil, coefficient of variation or even the Hirschmann–Herfindahl. As long as the “spatial concentration” does not seem to explain by itself the main features of the “hubbing” networks, we show that its use… CONTINUE READING
