Airline profits soar with extra fees

Posted: Updated:

 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Airline profits are soaring, thanks to all those extra fees you pay when flying.

A survey found airlines worldwide brought in $31.5 Billion in revenue from fees alone last year.

The income from extra fees has steadily grown from $2.8 Billion in 2007.

That means the amount of non-ticket revenue has grown 11 times in just 7 years.
