The Korean aviation industry (KAI) has been expanded significantly, because the Incheon International Airport opened in 2001 and low cost carriers (LCC) entered the KAI market. But following the KAI's growth, flight departure delays (FDDs) have increased six-fold during the past decade. In terms of these situations, this study firstly adds the FDD variable to an airline choice behavior (ACB) model and secondly analyses how FDD impact the ACB. As a result, FDD is relatively less influential on ACB than other attributes. Both the flight service and available schedule are positively related to the choice of full service carriers (FSC). The analysis shows that FSCs’ allotment rate (AR) is 85.3%, while LCCs’ one is 14.7%.
