Why Flying Is So Expensive? This Video Explains All Costs

Giant airplanes guzzle down a ridiculous amount of fuel. They need 1.5 gallons of jet fuel for every mile traveled. Many people think fuel price is the main cost of the ticket. But the fuel cost gets split down to a much more reasonable price: a per-person fuel efficiency of 104.7 miles per gallon. In addition to that, fuel prices are going down every month, but tickets cost the same or more. So what makes flying so expensive?

Well, there are a lot of everything else. For expample, a pilot’s salary, the crew cost, airport fees, taxes etc. All that can turn the $2.50 of fuel into $70 of “everything else.” Wendover Productions breaks down the cost of flying and explains why flying is so expensive.
