Baggage fees bring in the revenue

BAGGAGE FEES are a controversial subject in the UK but an indication of their value can be gauged by figures published by the US Department of Transportation for the second quarter.  Airlines in the United States collected $669.6m in fees for the period, nearly four times more than the amount gathered in the same period last year and up 18.2% from January to March.  The biggest revenue generator was American Airlines with $118.4m with Delta Air Lines (not including Northwest) just $86,000 behind and US Airways at $104.1m.  AirTran led the way with the low cost fraternity at $40.5m. www.dot.gov
