Price discrimination is an important form of maximizing profits in the aviation industry. The US aviation industry has various forms of price discrimination against passengers. In general, airline price discrimination is based on price elasticity for discriminatory pricing. It can be divided into income-based price discrimination, behavior-based price discrimination, contract-based price discrimination, and demand-based price discrimination. This paper sorts out the price discrimination in the American civil aviation tickets price, and hopes to provide some ideas and research directions for scholars to research ticket price discrimination.
