Hi Aditya
Thanx for ur generous comments... well I dont have any formal education or work-ex on queing or operatioal research. Whatever I have learned about these things is totally out of my curosity during my work in Club One Air. I have bit of idea about these things.
It can solve many issues, but thereare many other problems for Aviation Industry to solve, so industry is not keen take it seriously.
