Resell seat & maximize profit
The Yana Seat Resell module gives airlines another tool to optimize the use of their available inventory. When the value of a flight increases and inventory is limited, it automatically contacts passengers with an opportunity to move to a lower value alternative flight. Once the passenger is automatically compensated and moved to the new flight, the original seat is now available to be re-sold.
The Yana platform maintains machine learning models that allow it to determine how likely passengers are to agree to move to an alternative flight. When there is an opportunity to profitably move passengers from one flight to another, it is able to optimally balance compensation and other costs to the airline with the potential profit.
Feedback from passengers indicates they welcome the opportunity to receive something of value in exchange for their flexibility. Even those who are not able to do so on their current trip have provided positive feedback and a desire to do so again on another.
