Freebird models US domestic flights in a way that captures uncertainty at every step. We present a case study of using Bayesian modelling and inference to directly model behavior of aircraft arrivals and departures, focusing on the uncertainty in those predictions. Along the way we will discuss theoretical considerations, highlighting what can go wrong, while emphasizing practical implications around scaling to large data sets.
