Have you noticed that airlines are creeping extra charges in, on top of their low headline fares. Pay extra for your hold luggage, only being allowed one cabin bag (on Easyjet), on BA you can still get away with a handbag and a pully bag. This makes it more or less impossible to travel on Easyjet without a hold bag.
They charge for food and drink as well as premium exit row seats with marginally more leg room. The list is almost never-ending as they try to sell you more and more extras; security fast pass, lounge access, holiday insurance, hotels, the use of certain credit cards. Some airlines even add extortionate fees onto your free air miles bookings.
But Delta is not looking to add any more extras onto your inflight booking process, nor will it charge you any more than it currently does on board. According to Inc., it is looking to generate $7 billion USD from the airline’s new deal with American Express.
While we don’t know how much airlines profit from these credit cards, some conclude that these cards might be THE MOST profitable part of the airline’s business. Who knew!
