from CNBC July 13, 2015

CNBC reports that ancillary revenue from changed reservations, checked baggage and other fees collectively reached $38 billion in June, an increase of 21 percent year-over-year. Domestic airlines as a whole collected $2.6 billion more than they did this time last year.

“The growth in revenue from these fees is staggering,” CNBC’s Phil LeBeau writes, noting that they amounted to little more than $2.45 billion just eight years ago.
