Airline Expenses And Profits On A Mythical Flight

We just read Scott McCartney's most recent Middle Seat column in the Wall Street Journal. With the help of US Airways, he lays out the costs and profits as a percentage of passengers on a mythical 100-passenger flight.

The bottom line is that the one-hundredth passenger is the only profitable one. It all constitutes another reminder of why we wouldn't want to be in the airline business.
