This paper studies trade-offs between flight and passenger delays and fairness when assigning delay pre-tactically (on-ground at origin airport) due to reduced airport capacity. The paper also defines and analyses efficiency-fairness tradeoffs. The optimisation model is based on the ground holding problem and uses various objective functions: total delay for flights (considering reactionary delay), total delay for passengers (considering outbound connections), and deviation from a Ration By Schedule solution (to get a measure of the fairness of the solution). The scenario considered takes place at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, a busy European hub airport, and includes realistic values of traffic.
