The merlot.aero mission is to unleash airline performance. While the industry doubles every 10 years and is resilient to temporary changes in demand due to world events, significant short term challenges exist when responding to industry disruption such as the novel coronavirus. As we are passionate about solving complex airline challenges, we have been partnering with airlines on new optimization solutions - using the same proven SaaS solutions which have seen a 2-10% crew savings improvement in typical operations.

Solution 1: Workforce Requirement
Optimization Review


Spreadsheets don't have the processing power to help airlines make decisions during disruptions. merlot.aero's Workforce Planning Review provides the ability to construct scenarios to understand the minimum requirements of crew based on different projections, helping you to make intelligent trade-offs and shift costs.

Requirements Optimization

Take into account any upgrade, training, and level requirements in times of disruption for the most efficient recovery plan today and months from now

2020 Cost Shifting

Move 2020 leave already awarded forward into short term periods, or move a portion of 2021 leave allocation forward into 2020

Trade-off Optimization

Evaluate bringing forward training due to capacity reductions to allow for optimized recovery after disruptions or Force Majeure events

Recovery Scenarios

Calculate minimum FTE requirements across different recovery scenarios including monthly target vs salary minimums

Balanced Workforce Costs

Evaluate scenarios that explore the impact of decreasing pairing efficiencies (to allow for minimal pairing operational costs) on FTE requirements and overall workforce costs for the rest of 2020

Let powerful algorithms and analytics make sense of millions of data points to optimize your crew, flight, and airline performance in 2020's disruptions

Solution 2: Emergency Pairing
Optimization Review


Understanding the tradeoffs for ideal pairing scenarios can create significant crew, incentive payment, hotel cost and aircraft change efficiencies. Account for schedule changes, introduce extra time where required for aircraft disinfection, and identify minimum viable crew for normal operations for balanced decision-making and cost reduction.

Pairing Optimization

Optimize for revised number of flights in disrupted schedule, minimum crew and hotel costs, increased disinfection buffers, and operational impacts of the workforce planning scenarios

Solution Scenarios

Generate multiple solutions for the same schedules with slightly different configurations, then compare results to determine the best ‘operational’ solution, while considering trade-offs between the various pairing KPIs. The service allows for 3-5 different scenarios

Clever Benchmarking

Calculate the mathematically ‘best case’ scenario as a point of comparison. This provides guidance on potential areas for configuration change to generate subsequent improved solutions

Cross-airline Schedules

Include other airlines’ schedules as deadheading options
