How Airlines Spend Your Airfare

How Airlines Spend Your Airfare | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

A big chunk of every airline ticket goes toward paying for fuel, salaries and equipment. In the end, there's not much left over in the way of profit.


On an airplane carrying 100 passengers, how many customers does it take, on average, to cover the cost of the flight?


The Middle Seat asked US Airways and consulting firm Oliver Wyman to crunch airline expenses down to the percentages that an individual passenger pays, taking a hard look at costs of running an airline. US Airways created a hypothetical flight of 100 passengers. Each one paid the average $146 fare for a domestic flight ($292 round-trip), plus $18 each in fees and add-ons, based on a year's worth of data ending March 31. The bottom line: There is very little wiggle room on the plane for profit.

Traveling with Millennials

Traveling with Millennials | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Millennials in the U.S. value diversity, embrace a global perspective, and are open to new experiences. These characteristics—which suggest a generation of natural travelers—are good news for the travel industry. At this stage in their lives, however, many of today’s 16- to 34-year-olds have limited discretionary income and choose to dine out, shop for apparel, or save for big-ticket items such as education, a home, or a car instead of spending their money on travel. Millennials also seem to be more affected by adverse economic conditions than non-Millennials. As a result, most Millennials can’t afford extensive leisure travel, and few are fully active business travelers—yet. We estimate that they currently account for about one-third of total U.S. spending on business flights.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

U.S. Millennials will enter their peak period of earning, spending, and traveling in five to ten years. Forward-looking companies are developing targeted strategies and tactics now.

She likes the window seat; he likes the aisle. She wants the shade pulled down; he likes the shade up.


She checks a bag; he only carries on. She curls up in a ball to avoid contact; he sits with his elbows and legs splayed out.


The sexes can fly in different directions when it comes to airplane and hotel habits and preferences, adding stress to an already taxing experience for couples and families.

5 Years In The Making, Lufthansa’s Ingenious New Business Class Seats

5 Years In The Making, Lufthansa’s Ingenious New Business Class Seats | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

The easiest way for always-struggling airlines to maximize revenue is to get people sitting in their premium seats. Without buying new planes or rethinking routes, business class means that precious plane real estate can sell for more per square foot. But what do the airlines really have to work with? Space is finite. Serve them food, a glass of wine, and what else? Design the space better.
