The MotherLand Air case and game provide students with a first-hand experience in revenue management. The game is conducted in the classroom, and students, who have the opportunity to prepare in advance, work in teams. During the exercise, students make and revise pricing and protection-level decisions over a six-month, predeparture time horizon for two simulated flights. The case provides an introduction to nested reservation systems and overbooking and pricing polices.
