ABC in service companies such as airlines?
Chal
ABC may be appropriate in the manufacturng company, but I doubt applying in service givng companies is worth while. Especially in the airline industry where there are various types of common costs and too much different types of activities. Hence can ABC be applicable to the service rendering company?

Actually, ABC works quite well for allocating costs to airlines. I've built a model that does exactly that, using a few basic activity drivers, that results in allocating an airline's cost to each seat in its route. I'm sure that ABC works well in other service industries as well.
