As our skies become crowded with planes there comes a cost of increased Airline operational problems; one of the few ways airlines can improve their passenger experience and reduce expenses is by early detection of problems and prompt, optimal recovery.  Disruption Management helps detect disruptions early to enable airlines to respond faster, therefore preventing further deterioration of the situations. This solution calls for integrating a large set of flight operation systems, which largely work in isolation today. Bringing these systems together to solve airlines' operation problem at a new level is going to be both challenging and rewarding.
