how many pieces of luggage are unloaded at Boston airport on an average day?
Anybody know how best to answer this market sizing question?
I would break into 3 steps:
1) # of ppl that fly each day
2) # of ppl that fly into Boston each day
3) Assume 1 passenger has 1 bag and get total # of bags
Would do #1 by segmenting into age (younger ppl likely to fly more, older less). Only problem is my logic from getting from step 1 to 2 is pretty shaky. I was thinking about saying Boston's a major city with lots of connecting flights so maybe 5% of all people that take flights go to Boston.
Any other approaches? Thanks.
