“Concentration, Potential Entry and Performance in the Airline Industry,” The best model for explaining airline fares is found to be one in which the measure of market concentration takes into account not only the number and size distribution of incumbents, but also the number of potential entrants not significantly disadvantaged due to economies of scale and scope.  The hypothesis that all city-pair markets are perfectly contestable is rejected.
