    Summary
    We propose a new integrated model for pricing airline tickets that takes into account the perceived value of multiple services associated with a given flight. For instance, clients perceive benefits on different attributes such as refund options, baggage allowances, time slots, days of operations, Web check-in services, as well as airline brand.
