7 surprising factors that go into airline ticket prices

In 2012, the Department of Transportation began requiring airlines to advertise the full price of an airline ticket, with all mandatory taxes and fees included.

Yet, an airline ticket remains a complicated stew of taxes, fees, surcharges and other costs you may not be aware of.

While you can spend hours on the Internet to find reasonable fares have you ever considered factors that influence the fare?

What follows is by no means a complete list of everything included in the price of airfare, just some of the more interesting charges.


1. Base airfare

Don't confuse a $300 economy class airline ticket with 'base airfare'. Base airfare is the cost of the flight alone and on a $300 domestic ticket, that's about $250. The rest is non-optional taxes and fees. If that sounds like a lot, here's the breakdown on a recent international fare on American in mid-October from New York to London:

  • Base airfare: $311
  • Final ticket price: $1026

That is the same ratio used in my utilities, that is a bit scary.

Actual product and Admin fees. If that ratio is applied to whoever busy all the oil companies the Dutch are selling while predicting low oil price in the 'bbl' quantity means whoever buys these companies will have some big loans (@ interest) to pay-back. What used to cost $300 will now cost $1,000.

The Dutch alone will have a $2T trust funds to keep the pain down to minimal levels. They can supply themselves with all the NG they will ever need. Coal can be used after the gas is all used. To keep using coal means the NG is wasted and 10x the workforce is needed

The people of Terrace are kicking in a big chunk of the cost of the flight to Germany so they don't have to put up with your whining? I know if you were planning a trip to medicine hat I would gladly kick in 20 bucks to keep you going to Regina
