ANALYSER IS CONSTANTLY BEING UPDATED TO ENSURE OAG CAN PROVIDE THE BEST SERVICE TO YOU.

Over the years, the Analyser platform has undergone advancements and alterations in order to ensure users can have maximum flexibility to create the best analysis they need.

See below the version updates we have introduced.

New Exclude Scheduled Flights in Connections Analyser.

This release of Analyser contains important new functionality in Connections Analyser. One of the main uses of Connections Analyser is to be able to model the impact on connections from adding a new phantom flight. Exclude scheduled flights takes this a step further, it allows a user to delete current scheduled flights to model the impact on connections from taking these flights out. A user can combine Exclude Scheduled Flights with Phantom Flights to exclude flights and add in new flights to model how this effects connectivity. Also in this release a new search option has been added to Schedules Analyser to search by State.

 

Exclude Scheduled Flights

Exclude Scheduled Flights is in a new section called ‘Customise Flights’ with Phantom Flights. 

Figure 1 – New Customise Flights section

To start to use Exclude Scheduled Flights click the blue arrow to take you to the right-hand panel.

Figure 2 – Exclude Scheduled Flights section in right hand panel

Figure 2 shows how Exclude Scheduled Flights looks in the right hand panel. There are two options here; you can either make a new search to search for flights to exclude (click ‘Search Schedules’ button) or you can select a saved selection of flights from previous searches or edit/delete groups.

Saved flight selections are shown in the right-hand panel under ‘Saved Flights’ or these can be found in the middle panel as well.

When you click on ‘Search Schedules’ a new panel shows in the right-hand side. Here you can search for schedules you would like to exclude from your query. Click 'Find Out More' below to read the release notes for this new functionality and to go through a worked example. 

 

State Search in Schedules Analyser

From customer feedback we have added the option to search by 'State' in Schedules Analyser. The ‘State’ search is a radio button located with Airport, City, Country and Region in the middle input panel under Origin & Destination in all reports. The user can also exclude by 'State'. 'State' dimensions are also included in the Power Table under dimensions.

 State is located in the input screen here:

New Power Table Dimensions are called:

  • Dep State Code
  • Dep State Name
  • Arr State Code
  • Arr State Name

New Search by Departure and Arrival Time Window in Mapper.

This new release of Analyser gives Mapper customers the ability to search for flights by departure and arrival time window. The map will use the user's selections and plot this on the map. User's also can exclude a departure and arrival time window. This is similar to the functionality in Schedules Analyser.

Figure 2 shows an example of this new feature. The map shows departures from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) between 06:00 and 07:00 for January 2018. This shows there are only flights to USA, Canada and Mexico in this time window.

To continue to improve the quality of our releases and deployments, this release also includes changes in our backend processes. The improved process ensures that the deployment for production is of highest quality, is always built in a standard robust method and minimises build/deployment issues.

New Exclude Carrier Functionality in Connections Analyser

This release of Analyser contains new functionality to Connections Analyser. A user can now exclude a carrier’s schedule from their query in both the Connections Analysis Report and the Missed Connections Report. We have also made some performance upgrades to Connections Analyser.

Connections Analyser – Exclude Carrier

We have received feedback from our customers that they would like to build connections excluding a carrier in Connections Analyser. In both the Connections Analysis Report and the Missed Connections Report we have added this functionality. The exclude carrier functionality works in the same way as other Analyser modules.

Under the ‘Carrier’ input box shows the text ‘Add Exclusion’:

When a user clicks ‘Add Exclusion’ an input box appears below the carrier box allowing the user to select a carrier to exclude. The groups icon also allows the user to use saved groups of carriers to exclude.

Connections Analyser – Performance

Connections Analyser uses staging tables in its flow to store user query data. These staging tables are then used for showing results on screen. Over years, these tables have grown a lot without maintenance and this puts a burden on the Database server when it executes its queries. 

The back end data load process for Connection Analyser has been updated so that our staging tables remain optimised to only recent data. The daily maintenance job now removes stale data from ALL the staging tables.

Since these staging tables are now optimised to only hold recent data:

  • The UI rendering will be quicker.
  • Any SQL query for the staged CA data will be quicker.
  • There will be less load on the server.

Mapper

  • Bug Fix – Changing the colour of the lines in Mapper was not working for both Display and Highlight. This has now been fixed.

Analyser Maintenance Release

In this new release of Analyser we have a mixture of maintenance work and bug fixes to Schedules and Connections Analyser, the Job Bin and Scheduled Reports.

Schedules and Connections Analyser

  • Schedules Analyser - Top X Report – The Top X report previously searched by Airport Name instead of Airport Code. This meant if an airport changed its name there would be multiple lines of data which made it difficult to analyse. In this release we have changed the report to search by airport code and then apply the latest airport name. This eliminates the problem.  
  • Schedules Analyser - Stops option box in all reports was not big enough to populate the selected parameter >, < or =. This has now been changed.
  • Bug - Connections Analysis Report – If a report was run using the job bin, the user had selected the connections tab only and it generated no results, the UI in Analyser when downloading this report would just keep running so it looks like the report is still running. This has been fixed so the download option still gives an output if there is no data and the UI has been fixed. 

Job Bin

  • Job Bin – If a user deleted a report that had been run in the job bin there was no pop up message to ask if the user would like to delete the job. A pop up box with a message has been added in this release.

Scheduled Reports

  • Update to scheduled reports emails with the correct OAG branding and the email body address for OAG has changed to 1 Capability Green, Luton, Bedfordshire, LU1 3LU.
  • Bug - Scheduled Report – The rolling dates option in Schedules Analyser was not working. This has now been fixed.

Maintenance

  • Add server name being used by the browser in view-source so that we can see which server is being used.

We are very excited to release a new version of Analyser. This version is a maintenance release including a few bug fixes.

Firstly, we have changed the default chart in results pages to a column chart apart from the Schedules Bank Structure Report which will stay as an area chart. Line Charts are still available using the ‘Modify Graph’ option in the menu at the top right-hand corner of the chart. 

In Traffic Analyser Connections Report, Full Y and Disc Y columns for Estimated Passengers and Avg Fare, First, Business, Premium, Full Y and Disc Y for Average Fare were missing. These existed in the Classic Version of Analyser therefore we have added these columns in.

Lastly in DOT Analyser DB1B Detailed Report we have added Frequent Flyers in to every query and created an option to exclude them in 'Fare Class' dropdown box:

blob-1

Bug Fixes

  • If a user ran a report in Analyser including the map in the results page, then clicked back to run a different report, the map was keeping parts of the original query. This has been fixed.
  • All 'Season' options under 'Period' were not working in Schedules Analyser, this has been fixed.

New functionality in Traffic Analyser: Addition of Load factor, Estimated Revenue Calculation, Pro Rata Fares and Average/Online fare in High Charts 

This release contains the following exciting NEW features in Traffic Analyser:

  • Load Factor Calculation
  • Total Revenue Calculation
  • Pro Rata Fares Calculation
  • Average and Online Fares in High Charts

New! - Load Factor

The Segment Report in Traffic Analyser has been renamed to 'Segment & Load Factor Report' and now includes load factor! Load factor is a metric to show how full an aircraft is. It is calculated using Estimated Pax in Traffic Analyser divided by Total Seats from Schedules Analyser. 

Load Factor is now available in the Segment tab in the results page of the Segment & Load Factor Report.

Figure 1 - New results page showing load factor for LHR to JFK for the year 2016

New! - Total Revenue Calculation

A new metric called Total Est. Revenue has been added to the Power Table Report in Traffic Analyser. The current Total Revenue metric calculates revenue by class whereas our new metric Total Est. Revenue calculates using Total Est. Pax multiplied by AvgFare Total. This new metric allows for the data to be manipulated in Excel.

Example - LHR-JFK Jan 2016:

image-29

Total Est. Revenue = Total Est. Pax x AvgFare Total
Total Est Revenue = 119,558 x 890 = $106,361,697
AvgFare Total = 106,364,697 / 119,558 = $890

New! - Pro-Rata Fare Calculation

Two new metrics in the Traffic Analyser Power Table have been added as part of this release called Pro Rata Avg Fare and Pro Rata Seg Dist Share (%). The current Average Fare metric shows the average fare for a routing including connections. The new metric Pro Rata Avg Fare breaks this down to each flight in a connecting journey using distance and allocates a fare to each flight. 

Example - For the routing LHR-LAX-SFO the average fare is $985. LHR-LAX segment accounts for 94% of the total distance and therefore has a pro rata average fare of $927 (985 x 0.94 = $927).

image-38

'Pro Rata Seg Dist Share' metric gives the share of the segment of interest as a percentage of the total routing distance. 

These two metrics can only be used with traffic type Segment in the Power Table.
