Abstract

Looks at the different business models of two highly successful and profitable airlines: Chilean-based Lan Airlines and US-based Southwest Airlines. Lan Airlines pursues a hub-to-spoke international full-service model where passenger and cargo operations are highly integrated. Southwest, on the other hand, is set up for a point-to-point, low-fare, 'no frill's' service with a homogenous fleet. Designed for a course on the design of business models.
