Why Lumo?

Posted by Bala Chandran on Jan 1, 2019 12:00:00 AM

This is somewhat of an existential question. Back when we were going through our branding exercise, we were asked to complete the following statements: "We believe __________"; and "We exist to __________".

The Lumo delay indexes are a score from 1 to 10 given to each flight indicating how “risky” a flight is with respect to being delayed. The score is intended to capture both delay frequency (probability of a delay occurring) and delay severity (how long will the delay be if it does happen).
