This and the previous chapter stress that passenger behaviour on board aircraft
and in airport terminals should be interpreted and understood in the context of
the traveller's emotional state: although they may not display obvious signs of ...

With 2003 being the 100th anniversary of modern aviation, Passenger Behaviour was published at a milestone for the aviation industry. Remarkable achievements in engineering have made air travel highly accessible within the span of a single lifetime. However, when evolutionary barriers are exceeded various penalties are exacted. The most common experienced by air passengers include motion sickness, jetlag and increased arousal and stress at different stages of flight. Air travel also brings us into closer contact with strangers, making our examination and understanding of the social psychology of behaviour within groups (among passengers) especially relevant. This book examines a wide range of topics that help the reader to acquire a psychological understanding of how air travel impacts on human relationships; behaviour as well as physiological functions. Written by leading authorities in their areas, it is intended primarily for those with an interest in passenger behaviour and those who work professionally in commercial aviation. This includes pilots, cabin crew, ground staff, airline and airport managers, aviation psychologists, human factors specialists, aerospace medical/nursing personnel and aircraft designers and manufacturers. As air travel being an integral part of most people's lives, this book will also be of interest to anyone who travels either on a frequent or infrequent basis.

Mapping the Travel Behavior Genome covers the latest research on the biological, motivational, cognitive, situational, and dispositional factors that drive activity-travel behavior. Organized into three sections, Retrospective and Prospective Survey of Travel Behavior Research, New Research Methods and Findings, and Future Research, the chapters of this book provide evidence of progress made in the most recent years in four dimensions of the travel behavior genome. These dimensions are Substantive Problems, Theoretical and Conceptual Frameworks, Behavioral Measurement, and Behavioral Analysis. Including the movement of goods as well as the movement of people, the book shows how traveler values, norms, attitudes, perceptions, emotions, feelings, and constraints lead to observed behavior; how to design efficient infrastructure and services to meet tomorrow's needs for accessibility and mobility; how to assess equity and distributional justice; and how to assess and implement policies for improving sustainability and quality of life. Mapping the Travel Behavior Genome examines the paradigm shift toward more dynamic, user-centric, demand-responsive transport services, including the "sharing economy," mobility as a service, automation, and robotics. This volume provides research directions to answer behavioral questions emerging from these upheavals. Offers a wide variety of approaches from leading travel behavior researchers from around the world Provides a complete map of the methods, skills, and knowledge needed to work in travel behavior Describes the state of the art in travel behavior research, providing key directions for future research
A serious disruptive passenger incident occurs in roughly one of every 30,000
flights or for every two million airline ... The behaviour of passengers is influenced
by a number of factors: culture, age, gender, personality are all included (Bor, ...

The behavior of tourists - what their motivations are, what impact their behavior has on the places they visit, the decisions they make - is a fundamental aspect in understanding the tourism industry as a whole. Contemporary Tourist Behaviour provides an in-depth examination of how and why tourists behave as they do, and how this is perceived by hosts and outside agencies, covering national characteristics of tourists from around the world, effects of everyday events and governmental and environmental factors, and tourists' consideration of sustainable principles.

"This is a Ph.D. thesis. Until the early seventies of the last century, pedestrian traffic has hardly been subject of research. About that time, researchers started studying pedestrian behavior more intensively, first by watching and deriving (simple) theories and models from what they observed techniques became available, computers became faster and could handle larger and more complicated models, the number of available pedestrian models as well as their application scope and accuracy increased significantly. Contents include: Introduction, User requirements of a pedestrian flow simulation tool, State-of-the-art pedestrian flow theory, Laboratory experiments on pedestrian walking behavior, Identification of processes and elements in a pedestrian flow model, models for pedestrian behavior in public transport facilities, Implementation of a pedestrian flow simulation model, Verification and validation of SimPed, Case studies with SimPed, Conclusions, Bibliography: SimPed input and output, Set up and test of the laboratory experiments, Dynamic quality of the route choice model, Comparison of SimPed walking model with traffic flow theory and shock-wave theory, Data collection for validation of SimPed."

Experience has shown that there is a very close relationship between the geographical distribution of activities and the location of transport infrastructures, a relationship that is becoming evident again today as high-speed railway lines are built or enter the planning stage. This report seeks to determine what influence these lines will have on the regions served, particularly in the light of experience with the TGV Sud-Est in France.
