    Dear Lorna, Airlines, airports and aircraft manufacturers are using Big Data for much more than mining passenger data to increase revenues. Equally important is the effort to increase efficiency to save on costs. They have been turning to masFlight, the most comprehensive database for airline, aircraft and airport operations, to monitor performance and improve efficiency thereby saving millions of dollars. The data and software company is also important for passengers as the only source of data on the economic impact of all the weather-related delays and cancellations experienced since December. In January, alone, the economic impact was $2.5 billion for passengers and $150 million for airlines, illustrating just how important being on time really is.
