June 14, 2011 By: George Dooley Travel Agent

U.S. airlines collected almost $5.7 billion from baggage fees and reservation change fees in 2010, according to the airline financial data released today by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). Delta was the first in baggage fee revenue followed by American. Delta and American also topped the reservation Cancellation/Change Fee ranking.

The DOT/BTS said airlines received $3.4 billion from baggage fees and $2.3 billion from reservation change fees in 2010. These are the only fees paid by passengers that BTS can identify separately. All other fees paid by passengers are included in larger categories with other types of revenue. Additional fourth-quarter 2010 data are not yet available, BTS said.
