    Including the numbers from selling points to the CC companies definitely skews the results IMO. Not because they aren't making the money but because it doesn't really reflect the actual total cost to fly on a trip as experienced by the average consumer. That not all airlines disclosed the data and that they all report it slightly differently doesn't help the situation when it comes to comparing the carriers.

    True, although ancillary revenues are only set to increase with the rumored price hike of DirecTV on the CO side... :mad:
