An interactive data model to provide actionable insights as to the departure delays of domestic flights within the USA. by Andy Josolyne
A data visualisation model to provide insights into the airport departure delays for Virgin America (or any other airline operator). The model analyses 500,000 domestic flights within the USA during December 2015.
The visualisations have been chosen to provide a story of understanding the scale of operations of the domestic flights, including originating and destination airports. It is shown as a network, with geographic routes, a process map showing main hubs and the frequency of flights between airports, plus the key operating metrics and insights. Finally, it provides in-depth analysis that supports route cause analysis, whereby the day, flight number and aircraft tail number can be used to aid investigation of the causes of a delay at the departure airport.
The model was used to support my training and understanding of the Microsoft Power BI application.
