This paper attempted to analyze the factors influencing the existence and configuration of wave-system structures of large network airlines at hub airports based on the statistical data of daily flight schedules. A bootstrapped binary logistic regression model was used to analyze the relationship between wave-system structure and its influential factors. Further, a partial least squared regression model was employed to uncover the determinants of wave-system structures' configuration. It is found that the interaction effects of two types of flight rates positively determine the existence of a wave-system structure, and the rate of airline's daily flights had the biggest impact on the configurations of wave-system structures.
