Extra airlines fees now 10% of revenue

airline feesAirlines’ business practices never cease to amaze me. It appears that the “extra fees” (read blankets, ear buds, movies, baggage, change fees etc.) now make up ~10% of total revenue according to an article in the NYTimes. The data is actually from a survey from hopper.com – full data here. All this while the quality of “service” continues to be awful at best. Read and weep.
