Abstract

This paper estimates a Frequent Flyer Programs (FFP) price premium -- higher fares associated with a larger proportion of travelers using FFP. The results show that FFP affect the entire price distribution, but the effect is larger on lower end fares. In addition, airport dominance increases the premium on less expensive fares but has no effect on the premium associated with the right tail of the price distribution.
