Southwest Airlines tops Continental, United, Northwest in ancillary-fee revenue

Delta was the fee king at $425.7 million, far ahead of #2 American at $253.3 million while Southwest came in fourth among U.S. airline ancillary-fee collectors, according to a tally released May 3 by the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

First bags fly free at Southwest Airlines but the low cost carrier collected more ancillary-fee revenue in the fourth quarter than did Northwest, United, Continental, AirTran, JetBlue and Alaska Airlines.

At $157.2 million, Southwest came in fourth among U.S. airline ancillary-fee  collectors, according to a tally released May 3 by the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics.
So, when it comes to “nickel and diming,” Southwest is taking a clever marketing tack with its free-bag mantra, but behind the scenes it is aggressively collecting fees for services unbundled from the basic fare.

As has been the pattern, Delta was the fee king at $425.7 million, far ahead of #2 American at $253.3 million.
