Airlines Spend over $300 Per Person on Fuel to Fly NYC-LA-NYC

To fly someone from New York to Los Angeles and back, airlines spend close to $330 these days – just on fuel.

That’s a 48 percent increase from last year and the main reason vacationers face record costs to fly this summer. To offset their single biggest expense, airlines have hiked fares seven times this year and raised fees for checking bags and other services.

This only has added to the frustration of most casual fliers who see $59 fares advertised but are quoted prices well above $300 when they actually try to book. Americans’ ideals of a cheap vacation are being destroyed by the reality of $100-a-barrel oil.
