    AGIFORS and the airline OR community has lost one of its most endearing and thoughtful personalities in Keith Rapley. He was the AGIFORS President from 1993-1996. For Keith, OR was not so much a matter of methodology as a way of looking at the world, a stance that enriched the community of both those working directly on operational research projects and those in the wider airline community. His obituary will appear in the December edition of Inside OR. RIP.

    As technical chairs, we want to promote the value of the presentations which are given at AGIFORS events.

    We want to illustrate the benefit of attending AGIFORS events and the Symposium in particular.

    Also, we want to stress the opportunity for any airline analytics professional to interact with the experts in their respective fields.

    So, without disclosing all AGIFORS proceedings, which are available to AGIFORS members, and which include decades of presentations, we here share FOR FREE, a selection of presentations based on their respective number of downloads. 

    We welcome your feedback in the comments section below.

    In the near future, we will be sharing the next batch of files in this series.
