Abstract:

This article provides a primer on the different types of single-item auctions, and then discusses the various combinations of pricing flexibility and opaqueness. It then reveals that whereas 13% of hotel rooms are sold through auction sites, less than 1% of airline seats are auctioned off. It concludes with plausible reasons for the relative unpopularity of buying airline tickets through auctions.
