Abstract:

This report develops a generic model for analysis of the costs and benefits of fire-risk reducing strategies related to passenger airlines. The model calculates incremental costs for installing and operating these options. It also calculates estimated lives saved and property damage avoided, and it provides rules for combining costs and benefits into a single measure of attractiveness for an alternative. This model is then applied to the strategy of fire-blocking seats on passenger airlines, either on U.S. airlines or on all world airlines.
