I consider Dr. Odoni and Dr. de Neufville to be among the foremost thinkers
in the airport planning
and systems analysis field. They possess a broad spectrum of knowledge
on airport issues
including facility design, operations analysis, financing and related environmental
a knowledge that balances the practical realities of planning and running
airports with the
cutting edge of research.... I particularly admire their ability of comprehend
the implications of
complex airport issues, to develop workable solutions, and to explain these
understandable terms to practitioners and politicians.
